Bob Parkins

Bob and Audrey have been an important part of my family for more than six decades. They started out as my parent's tenants, back in the 50's, but quickly became their best friends. Over the years, our families have shared many a holiday season together, and a train load of memories.
Eight years ago, our dear Audrey unexpectedly passed. Now, after years of defying the odds, we have lost our one and only, Robert. I will deeply miss his off beat sense of humour, and our long reminiscent talks, at the end of our yearly Christmas day celebrations.
Bob's passing represents the end of an era; the end of a very important chapter in my family's life. Although Bob will be deeply missed, it gives me great comfort to know that he is finally at peace, where he wants to be, with Audrey.
Goodbye Kid ❤
Love you forever, Carol ❤
