    Condolences to Bob's family. When I was younger I loved to visit Lakewood and visit my neat cousins Bob and Bill. And we always enjoyed our Granddad Wallace's farm. Although in later years we hadn't seen much of each other we always kept in touch at Christmas. I'm sure he will be missed by all who knew him.

    I was so sorry to learn of Bob's passing. As one of Jean's younger first cousins and only 4 years old at the time, I so remember seeing her marry Bob and how exciting the wedding was for a wee young thing like myself. They were both always such fun and added so much to our family gatherings, especially for my folks who were also avid bridge players and golfers. I will always see Bob's big grin and hear his hearty laugh when I picture us all together, and I am sure that his grandchildren and great-children will fondly remember the same. My thoughts and prayers go out to my dear cousins, Jim, Dave, Jane and Tom, along with their spouses, their children and grandchildren, and the rest of Bob's family. RIP Bob and God Bless.
