    Dear Lois, Don and Brian,

    I was shocked and saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. He will be missed by so many people, including my family and I. We have all sought Bob’s advice and counsel over many years and appreciated his kind and gentle manner in which he directed us. The front door was always open and the coffee pot was always on as Bob sat at the kitchen table behind piles of files. He always had a smile for everyone, no matter how busy he was.

    My thoughts are with Lois and the family at this time and I pray that God will surround you all with His loving care.

  5. Dear Family, I was just a client, but Bob was more than just my “Tax Man”. Upon meeting him I soon felt the “Saskatchewan Farmer” warmth that Bob portrayed. He was always very open and understanding of everything and everyone; a more kind and gentle spirit, I do not know. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time, a very very sad loss to us all. He WILL BE REMEMBERED with fondness. Peace to you all.

    Lois, Don and Brian – What can we say but that we will miss him so very much. A kinder, more generous and giving man, we will never know. He counselled us on so many occasions over the years and helped us with many a decision. He invited us into his home and his heart and he will be remembered as a wonderful friend and confidante. To all of you, you are in our thoughts so much at this saddest of times. You have our sincerest sympathy.
