  4. Dear Kerry
    Robert, as we knew him, & our family, shared many happy times together in our early formidable years.. Our Mums were the best of friends. Joan & Gloria shared many experiences and ‘many’ ‘ ‘ ‘kids moments’ together, sharing 17 of those kids between them! I am so saddened to hear of Rob’s passing & extend my sincerest condolences to all the Colville Family. Kerry, thank you, for loving Rob & for your care during his final struggles.
    Sometimes there are no perfect words … Only thoughtful silences that speak softly of caring.
    For all the happy memories …
    Love, Light & Laughter
