    My Sincere Condolences Ray and the extended Charlton Family.
    To me Bev was always a welcoming, fun, full of life, sharing, strong, caring woman. Bev must have been part mad, as I got the keys to the “border raider” one weekend, and I am forever indebt for that great experience. A life well lived and I’m sure many will be sadened by the news. For ever in our hearts.
