Paul and I are so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. Paul and I met Bob and Grace at the M&M RV Village in Wellton, where they were quickly became such great friends, and such a support. Many an evening we played cards and many laughs. Just thinking about it makes me remember Bob quietly playing and then trumping and taking a hand from Grace, with such a twinkle in his eye. Then the games began. We were privileged to attend Bob's 80th BD, and spend time with family and friends. Due to the COVID, we haven't seen Bob and Grace in the last three years, but think of them often. Grace, Gord, and the rest of the family. we are so sorry for your loss! Remember the good times!
