    I am so sorry to hear about your Dad's death. I remember Uncle Bob's jokes and sly smile. He could always get Dad laughing! I always knew there would be a warm welcome from Uncle Bob and you when we came to visit. Sending you strength at this sad time.

    On behalf of the Askew family I would like to convey sincere condolences to the Andrews family. Our families shared many good memories going as far back as childhood and continuing later in a working relationship where I had the pleasure of knowing Bob .He was a very, very funny man who always found a way to cheer you up with his many humourous stories and tales. Bob was one of the good guys and I had the greatest respect for him. I'm saddened to learn of his passing and my intentions were to attend the service. My apologies to the family for not being there however the weather is to cumbersome for me to get into Oshawa. May Bob rest in peace knowing he truly was a great guy.
    With fond memories, 
    Jan Askew
