Tribute wall - a place to share your memories and condolences

Peggy Estabrooks

We are always so grateful for memories of times past that help us during this difficult earthly separation. Bob was a great story teller and I believe that the last time he and Pete spoke, they regaled each other with hockey stories. I empathize with you Marilyn. Love and condolences to you and your family.
