Dearest Judy and family - This is a very hard time for you all as I well know. At the very least be grateful that Bob is no longer suffering. He was such a great man - can remember playing Bingo together at Confed. He was so good natured. and many thanks to him for looking after my horse Ranger - he can ride him in heaven. Take care all of you and give me a call to go for coffee sometime Judy. or I am on face book.
