    Dear Carolyn and family;
    We were shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Bob.
    From our seven years in Whitby, we have many fond memories of good times that we spent with you and Bob. I remember too the children playing together and the birthday parties that they attended together.  We know that it is over thirty years ago since we moved away but it seems like yesterday.
    We extend our deepest sympathy to you and the family.
    You are in our thoughts and prayers.
    With love, 
    Joan and Julien❌⭕❌⭕

    Dear Carolyn and family
    We are sorry to hear about the  sudden passing of Bob. 
    Bob's smile and wave will be missed as we drive by. Bob looked for me every April when I collected for cancer . We would chat and get caught up on our children and grandchildren lives. We have been neighbours a long time.
    He will be remembered.
