    Saddened to her of your loss. I knew Debbie so many years ago in White Rock as a child, and had lost contact unfortunately. I would love to her from her again.
    My sincere condolences to the family.

    Bob was a different type of individual which made him a really interesting man to know. He and Virginia have been our friends for over 40 years and he will be missed. One could always stir up a conversation with Bob with interesting points of view discussed at length. He will be missed. Our thoughts are with you Virg. & Family.
