    Jamie and Ellen, I am incrediably sorry about Uncle Bob’s passing. Of course knowing him for 52 years I have very fond memories of our trips to Bow Island, Taber and Calgary when we had a chance to get together as a family. I’m going to miss sending him Christmas cards every year keeping him updated on what was happening with the Nielsens and I’ll miss the card that he would send back with a simple Love Uncle Bob. I would like to think now that he’s in great company in heaven with the family that has gone before us. We will all miss him, but at least we can hold our memories in our heart.

    Sorry for your loss Ellen, I am glad I got the opportunity to meet your dad.

    I am not Gone

    I am not gone
    I remain here beside you
    Just in a different form
    Look for me in your heart
    And there you will find me
    in our love which forever lives on

    In those moments when you feel alone
    Look for me in your thoughts
    And there you will find me
    in sweet memories that burn strong

    Every time a tear
    Forms in your beautiful eyes
    Look up to the heavens
    And there you will see me
    Smiling down from God’s glorious skies
