I do not know how to express my deepest sorrow on the passing of Bob.I know that he will be missed by many. I was so happy to have had some time to share with him at his birthday.

Rose he was my dearest friend. We shared so many good times together.Playing football thru school and with the Sarnia teams.

I have always thought of him as my second brother. I will miss him very much.

I am sorry that I will not be there, but he is in my heart.
