  1. Charles Bronson was,my favorite male actor and he,lived a tragic life when his wife died of breast cancer in California as he loved and cherished her!my Abenaki anscestors,are from the New England ,Quebec area !!

    1. Yes, you rarely saw him smiling after Jill Ireland died. His 3rd wife must have felt like she could never live up to Jill Ireland ~ the woman he would love forever. He had Jill Ireland cremated and put her ashes in a cane which he was buried with when he died in 2003. Sad.
