Dear Thérèse and family, please accept our deepest condolences for this terrible loss. Although we didn’t see him often, we spoke on the phone regularly and he visited a few times. He always enquired about everyone’s health and activities. He offered help to anyone who he thought might need it. He was a good man and we will miss him. Please take care of yourself and he will continue to watch over you from above.

Thérèse and family, Bob and I worked together for several years at Blueberry School and he was so much more than a colleague. Bob made a positive impact on all who knew him and he led by example. He treated everyone with genuine care and made a person feel special. His incredible memory for birthdays and his easy laugh are only two of many of his attributes. Bob was always a true gentleman and his positive outlook and caring ways were shared on a daily basis with those who had the honour of sharing time with Bob. Bob was always sincerely interested in the families of those he knew and was quick to ask for updates. I am sorry I will be unable to attend Bob’s funeral mass, this saddens me, but I am out of town. Therese, I will look for you in church on the regular Sunday mass and want to express my sincere condolences to all of you. Love,
Cheryl and Brent Korte
