  12. My Uncle Chilla, my mums loving brother of brothers, including Uncle Richard, I really don’t know how you three beauties left this earth all in a matter of 2.5 years, what a loss for us all, however, what a beautiful light in heaven that has lit, reunited with Hannah Julia, Charles William, mum, dad, cousin Michael, my brother Peter, and all of our beautiful angels including our little Margaret Mart who lived a little bit remembered 5 days at birth. I’m trying still to deal with Mum and Richards passing and I was terribly shocked to hear that Uncle Chilla is resting now as well. I wish for love, comfort, and support to all, happiness and health moving forward for all of us living, may the sun shine on you and warm your hearts knowing that the suns rays are our angels constantly loving us, yours Marie Therese Hansen (your niece)

  15. Fond memories of our childhood growing up and visiting at Swan Lake. Above all else Charlie would always make sure we were having fun and would love to teach us new things and give us new experiences, whether it be sharing his passion for bowls and taking us to the club to watch him compete or the AFL grand final eve function, to fishing for eels in the lake. A true gentleman who will be missed by all who knew him and has impacted many lives in many positive ways.

    Rest in Peace Charlie
