Dick and Pat Allen

Idean and Family
We will miss a good friend with Vic's passing - one topic not included in his obituary is his involvement with the Charlton Seniors group - Vic was a solid contributor to both the initial and continuing process of establishing an organization that would be helpful, long lasting and ever improving - as he aged, his increasing absence was obvious to the membership and will now be even more so with his death
Our sympathies and condolences go to all your other friends and acquaintances
Sincerely
Dick and Pat Allen
