  • Diane so sorry to hear of Bob's passing, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I remember when you and Bob looked after us Jemson kids when Mom and Dad went on Vacation. I was the young kid that hung around the body shop in Glenboro and have fond memories of Bob there. - Posted by: Steven Jemson (Friend) on: Jan 27, 2019
