Beste Ria en familie,
Onze condoleances bij dit grote verlies. We begrijpen uit het bericht, dat jullie al langere tijd zorgen hadden.
Wij bewaren mooie herinneringen aan ons bezoek in Canada (alweer 10 jaar geleden), toen Bob als gids met ons meeging om de omgeving te laten zien en de familie te bezoeken.
We hopen en bidden om kracht en sterkte voor jullie om dit verlies te dragen; we wensen jullie veel liefde om elkaar daarbij te steunen.
Bert en Aly Middelkamp, Assen -NL

Deepest sympathies and big hugs to everybody. Bob was such a lovely man that will live on in our hearts forever. Mike & Rachel

Sincere condolences to you, Ria and your family. We remember Bob’s friendly manner, warm smiles and his love for singing. There’ll be no shortage of that now for him. We also remember the tremendous fight for recovery he waged after the snowmobile event, showing his confidence in God’s healing and restoration. Bob’s fight is over. Our hope and prayer is that you find comfort and rest in God’s grace and power to overcome.
