Hi Aunt Pat, Loraine, Bob, Larry and Linnette

We are so sorry to hear about Bob passing away and disappointed that we can't come up to be part of a celebration of his life. I have fond memories of coming up there every other year when I was growing up and spending time with you and all the rest of the family. My Dad really enjoyed talking with Bob and the rest of the men and would often reminisce later about the fun they all had together shooting the breeze and telling tall tales. My Mom, Pat, misses you and the rest of her siblings and would have loved to see you, even under these terrible circumstances. She frequently speaks with me about wanting to go back home one last time, but she's past being able to travel now and won't be able to make that trip no matter how much she would love to.
All our condolences,
David Atkins, on behalf of Anne (Shirley) and my family Cheryl, Iain and Alexander
