    To Mary- Lynn and family,
    When I returned to teaching in Regina I was very lucky to be placed at Thom Collegiate at Bob’s request. Bob was my idea of what a principal should be. He was decisive, smart, supportive and made my job as a music teacher so much easier as a result. All he asked was that you worked hard, communicated with him, (no surprises) and he would in return support you 100 percent. I mourn his loss and Lynn and I extend our thoughts and prayers to Mary – Lynn and family.
