  • So sorry for your loss May your memories help you through your grief Frank and Inger Wagar

  • To Hazel and family, I met Charley when he was in hospital and I had the great privilege of working with him during his recovery. I will never forget that his main goal was to get better and be able to dance with Hazel again. He was a wonderful person. Always smiling. After he went home I would run in to him and Hazel and he would always give me a big hug. He will be missed. Darlene
