  13. Sending sincere sympathy to all of Bob's family & also to Larry & Linda & Allan & Bea. The South family were close neighbours on 8th Line & really good friends. Bob went through public school with our daughter, first 2 years at the one room school then in Brigden at the central school.
    Bob was much too young to pass away, he should have had many more years to enjoy his family.
    Sincerely Marie Sheppard
