So sorry I couldn't be there today but happy that Lynn was able to chat with a few of you. We just got home from Judique Cape Breton - where the Kinsella clan began their NS connections and it was good fortune that we happened to read the paper where we learned of your Father's passing. As we told your Dad when we met, he and my father - Robert Kinsella would loved to have known one another - maybe now they'll make that happen! Lynn shared that it was a lovely service filled with laughter and great stories - just as an Irish service should be! Our sympathies to you all on the loss of Chuck. Sincere condolences - Peter Kinsella
