    To Marjorie and Family. We were deeply saddened to hear about Bob’s passing. Our prayers and heartfelt condolences go out to all of you during these difficult times, especially at Christmas. It sounds like Cousin Bob had a courageous last 8 months in dealing with his lung cancer. Our memories of him go way back. We especially remember the early days with our young families at Jasper during the summer months. He always had a cheery smile on his face and I especially remember his gentle rolling laugh. He was always so encouraging and attentive to the needs of others, sometimes right out front and other times the quiet guy behind the scenes making sure everything went okay. I can only imagine this is the way he continued his later life looking after everyone. No more suffering for him now and a legacy of caring memories he has left for many of us.

    You and your family are in our prayers. Although we can’t be at the Service this Saturday in Calgary, we will be there in spirit thinking of Bob and you, and sending many loving thoughts. In Bob’s memory, we have made a memorial tribute to the Alberta Lung Association. May the peace of God that passeth understanding be with you all.

  6. Marg: Your husband was a very special man and will be missed in our community. He was an exemplary neighbor; always cheerful and willing to lend a hand. We will miss the many conversations and the ‘hello’ and ‘see-you-later’ waves from the vehicle. We will never forget his courage and dignity in fighting his illness.
    Marg, you are very dear to us and want you to know you always have our support. We are praying for you and your family during this difficult time. We love you.
    Your friends and neighbors,

    Dear Marjorie, what a wonderful celebration of Bob’s life you shared with us all yesterday. Knowing you and Bob through activities with the PEGG Women’s club, we shared many bridge games, dance lessons and hikes.

    Dear Marjorie and Family, we were so sorry to learn of Bob’s passing. I enjoyed working with him so many years ago at Husky Oil, he was a pleasure to work with.

We know he will be sorely missed by you and your family and our sincere condolences go out to you all. Gary and Elaine

    Mrs. Wohl, Greg and Carol:
    I have nothing but the fondest of memories of Mr. Wohl and the times our families spent together over the years. My memories of Mr. Wohl are of his passion for everything that he did as well as his good sense. I recall one time where he had the good sense not to x-country ski shortly after New Years on gravel-covered roads. Others among us, and I won’t name names, did not share in his good sense.
    Our condolences,
    Mark and Heather Thompson
