Susan and I send our deepest sympathies to our extended family of Billie, Karen, Roseanne and Dennis…..”Mr C” was one of the finest gentlemen we’ve had the pleasure of knowing! A very kind and caring man and father. I’ve known him since I was a teenager and he was always the same, very friendly, kind and knowledgeable. He was always interested in how our fishing was going, be it up north trawling or lobstering, which he spent doing many days himself with Dennis! My drives home down the shore are never going to be the same without my yarns with my buddy!!…..Rest easy my friend!….Frank and Susan

So sorry to hear about Uncle Erlin’s passing. I have fond memories of our families visits. Uncle Erlin in the rocking chair in the kitchen and dad holding court in his chair at the end of the table. The stories were always entertaining. They often seemed larger than life and I thought maybe they were a little careless with the truth, but frequent repetition never changed them. God bless you all. – Mike and Marian
