RIP Bob. You were such a kind, good natured soul, and always good to our Mom, Doris.

Due to COVID-19 risks, we will not be attending the service in person, but we’ll be there with Bob in spirit.

We take comfort in all our good memories of Bob, including our frequent visits throughout his stay at Birchaven. During those visits, we also enjoyed playing Bingo, visiting the birds, going to music events, and taking walks around Birchaven with him. Bob especially loved the visits when we brought one of our dogs to visit him. She would do tricks for him and then take comfort on his lap while he petted her with big smiles on his face.

Such a difficult time after COVID restricted things, but we are grateful for the many times Birchaven was able to permit us weekly visits during the pandemic with COVID restrictions in place.

Peace be with you, Bob. We will be making a donation to a charity in Bob's memory in lieu of flowers, as he wished.
