From: Trish Gillman
Relation: Friend

Dear Margaret. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Bob. He was a great man. Always had a sense of humor to everything. I know since you moved to BC we lost contact, and I was truly hoping to get to see you once I arrived. I know Ann and her family are truly broken with the loss of her dad and the children’s grandpa. I know how hard it is to lose someone. I know these words sound trivial right now, because the pain is so deep. There is no question in my mind that Bob is watching over all of you. To know that Jesus extended his hand for Bob to take is comforting, but that unfortunately does not help the pain right now. You are all in my heart and prayers. Keep Your eyes on Jesus he will guide you and comfort you. Lots of love Trish
