I was so sorry to hear about Bob’s death. My condolences to the family. We all had such fun as children. Good memories.

Marion and Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I am thinking of you at this difficult time. If you need anything just call me.

So very sorry to hear of Robert’s passing. We have become a much smaller family as the years pass and sadly as we have all become busy with our day to day lives and surviving the challenges of aging we have not been in touch as much as we could have. Just wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you all at this very difficult time and offer our heartfelt sympathy for you sad loss. Jeff and Linda Dick

Marion, Paula and Andrew,

I was so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I remember well and with gratitude both of you welcoming me at your home when I was living and working in St. John’s many years ago. I wish you comfort and peace today especially when you will be remembering Bob with family and friends. On behalf of Anne, Michael and Marlene,


Heather and the entire Dawe family, please accept my sincere sympathy at this time of great loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Marion and Family,
sorry to hear about Bob’s passing, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Robin & Joyce

Dear Paula –

With deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Marion, Andrew, and Paula,
I am shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden passing of your husband and father and send my heartfelt sympathy to all of you. I have warm memories of Andrew and Paula from Macdonald Drive Elementary and especially remember the delicious cherry cake that was a Christmas gift from their mother. I know what a loving, close family you are and can only imagine what a loss this is for you. Regretfully I am away and unable to attend the funeral, but be assured of my prayers at this most difficult time. May God’s love surround you and grant you peace.

Marion and family,
We are all so sad and shocked to hear of Bob’s passing. Bob was always one for a story and a chuckle. I remember him as a youngster while visiting Auntie Vel on Byron St many moons ago and he would be telling ghost stories to make your imagination go wild. And it worked!
I hope your memories will bring you comfort in the days ahead.
Sincerely, Daphne & Bruce
