    Sincere sympathy to you Bob and family on the loss of your father.  I remember your kindness to him when we met at Extendicare.  You were a good son to him and I'm sure he was very proud of you.

    To Bob and family:
    My condolences.  May the good memories help lessen the sorrow.  Mr. Donabie was a special man and a great neighbor.  He was greatly missed when he left the neighbourhood.  I loved his stories and how he knew all the dogs names but not the owners.  He has a special place in my heart.
