    Our family was very saddened to hear about Bob`s passing.  We remember him fondly.  Marie and Bob were the first people we met on the lake and they took  us under their wing.  Many times they would take our kids around the lake in their pontoon boat and let them play at their beach.
    Bob was always there if we needed anything.
    We remember a very kind, considerate, loving gentleman.  We send our deepest condolences to Marie and the whole family.  We know he will be terribly missed.
    Mel and Jeff Geurts and family.

    Langstaff & Pisani Family
    Our condolences to the Armstrong family.We spent a few days together in the hospital, as our parents were in a room next to each other.Mr Armstrong had a lot of family visiting and their love and care, and sleepless nights was unconditional.It was a roller coaster for all of you,as he was awake and responsive at times, and then just the opposite.We are sure, that he was aware that each and everyone of you, especially your Mother was there,and was able to support him,
    in every way that you could, and say your final goodbye's.Unfortunately,we never had the chance to meet him,but certainly felt the love,and prayers, that were spoken at the church. May God give you all the strength, to get through these hardships, and remember those special memories. Gary,I will never forget how you made my mom smile, by sharing that lovely yogurt ice cream bar with her, even in the last days with your Dad.She was so ever grateful.God Bless you all xo
