Dear Margo and family, My deepest sympathy to you on Bo's passing. He and I go back a long way to PWC in St,John'sNL Being the only Montreal Canadian fans in a sea of Maple Leafs,making goalie pads out of life magazines,our mothers nylons and floor canvas. He had an incredible sense of humour and ability to put it into cartoon form.He was truly one of a kind. We share in your loss and our prayers go out to you, Love Dorothy and Bob MacLeod

Very sorry to hear the news today so would like to pass on condolences to Margo & family on behalf of Jean ( who has the same horrid disease as Bo had ) & I.

Many wonderful memories of the long past & disappointment that we hadn't had more time together in retirement. The pleasant memories will be lasting.
