A beautiful picture of Bob...with his twinkling eyes. My heart goes out to Marie, Susan and Catherine, Mary, Matt, Katie, Jonah, Frankie, Ann, Steve, Deb and all the family, as well as the little dog ....

Bob was a man of honesty, integrity, great love and super talent, an artist with wood and so intelligent. He will be greatly missed and he is with all of you still. I will always remember his insights that he shared with me.

Love and prayers, Sue

I already started writing something, then my cat jumped on the keyboard and I lost it - so I hope my previous unfinished contribution did not make it to the site.
Sincere condolences to Marie and the rest of the family. Bob was a well-liked member of our co-op community for many years. Bob and Marie were well travelled, and we loved hearing about their trips. Bob was generous with his talents, and his hand-crafted Mounties continue to stand on guard outside out community centre, as a reminder of Bob.

My deepest sympathy goes out to you Susan and family. You can see in your dad's photo everything that you told me about him--a keen sense of humour, intelligence and kindness. I can imagine how deeply you are feeling his loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Lynne

Hello Jenkins Family,
Our deepest sympathies on your loss. We sincerely hope that the fond memories you have of special moments spent together as a family sustain you through these difficult times.
Regrettably, we will be unable to join you in your celebration of Mononcle Bob's life as we will be in Europe as of Monday. Matante, we will visit you when we return.

We are with you in our thoughts and hold good memories of our time with him.

Helene and Anna
