Not sure what to say?

To the family and loved ones of Bob Davey, I am so incredibly sorry for your loss! I have come to know Bob very well over the last few years, while working with him at Huston Lumber. Almost everyone of my conversations with him were about how proud he was of his boys and his love of his family. I will miss our conversations and many laughs together. May he forever live on within the family.

So sorry Kim, remember you both from Milltown Library
