When I moved into the apartments in Marlborough Bob and I would quietly walk past each other by the mail boxes. He was such a nice man. I always made sure to tell him when we were having a small get together in the day room. I will miss his smile and quick word of the temperature outside. Rest in peace Bob. Fern Apt 4

I had the pleasure of working with Mr.Delisle for three years.He was always so kind and warm.He also had a great sense of humor and enjoyed playing solitaire on the computer.He always spoke of his children with that gleam in his eye that if you knew him,you saw.My thoughts are with the family and other friends at this time.The world may have lost a wonderful man but heaven gained its angel.
Respectfully,Cynthia
