    Lee, Leanne, Todd, Michelle,
    I am so sorry to hear of Robb’s passing. Remembering his jovial laughter and upbeat and happy spirit always brings a smile to my face. He was a kind and gentle man who was devoted to his family and loved you all so deeply.
    My deepest condolences to you all during this difficult time.
    Sending love to you all.

  • Neil and Joan McJannet says:

    Dear Lee and Family,
    We are so sad to hear of Robb’s passing. He was such a special guy and we appreciated him so much. Neil always said that he could never do all the business he did in Kelowna without Robb’s assistance. He was always upbeat and happy and kept his cool even under a lot of stress which happened often working with Neil. We are sorry that we will not be there on Dec. 13 as we are still in Texas but our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Love, Neil and Joan
