I send my condolences to the Charles Dianich Family. Charles was my second cousin. My mother Ann Dianich Hill was Charles' first cousin. Their fathers were brothers. May Eternal Rest be granted to Charles and may his soul rest in peace.

I haven't seen my second cousin since 1960 in Ramsay, but I haven't forgotten him. I know that Charlie had a good life, but I'm sorry that I never did meet his family. Rest in peace, Charlie.
