    In my childhood, it was a special summer treat when Grandma Barnsley’s friends Aunt Dolly (Laura) & Uncle Doran drove from Arizona and stayed on the farm at Grandma’s house. I fondly remember Christmas packages from them – pencils with my name embossed in gold were a highlight! In my university days I had the privilege once summer of working as a guide at the Motherwell Homestead National Historic Park.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Bob was my first supervisor and friend in Portage la Prairie MB back in the early 70’s .
    He took me under his wing and provided superior guidance.
    I visisted him in Cold Lake while I was still stationed in Portage and was with him again when I was posted to Cold lake later on.
    He was a person to remember and will certainly be missed.
    Its a shame that the good ones go at such a young age.
    Ill miss him.
