Geoff and Karen we are sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. This time must be difficult when you are so far away. I fondly remember visits to the Robey households on Guthrie and Egmond Dr. Your parents were always gracious and welcoming. Rory and Marion Sim

Dora was a special friend and neighbour. We have known your mother since 1983 and found her an entertaining lady. We know you will miss her. Now she is with her soul mate once again , your father. May she rest in peace.

With Fond Memories of Mrs. Robey As a young child, I enjoyed many visits on Guthrie Dr. with Mrs. Robey & my Granma, Annie Bothamley. I picture the two of them now, greeting each other, smiling brightly. *If tears could build a stairway & memories build a lane, I'd walk right up to Heaven & bring You home again* ThankYou, Mrs. Robey, With Love & Blessings for Your Family, Craig Burley & my Mom, Doreen Acton (ne; Bothamley)
