God speed Heather...

After a long battle with cancer(s), the love of my life slipped away peacefully at home surrounded by family. She hurt no more and she is now an angel.


1954-2016

We have been together thru thick and thin, both battled cancers and various serious illness, but thru it all there was never any questions about supporting and being there for each other.  To us "I do"  truly meant for better and for worse.

We dream together, laugh and cry together, and supported each other passions as only a loving couple can.



I will sorely miss her smile that told me everything is all right, we will get thru this together, one more time. Her sense of humour and playfulness, but above all her unconditional love and support.


Rest in peace my love, I Love you. Always did, always will.


You are now in good company, with lots of your favorite musicians, enjoy the party.

Until we meet again, I'll be thinking of you always....


Bob, who miss you already but comforted by the two wonderful children you left behind and your little bundle of joy, Rudy.

Heather and Tim, our oldest

Rachel, the best thing that ever happened to Tim, Heather and Tim

Heather and Matt
Matt, our youngest

Heather and Rudy, the baby


Do not stand at my grave and weep.

I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there; I did not die.

  2. I am without words to express my feelings at this saddest of all things that can happen to you. I'll be thinking of the lunch we had in Massachusetts last year.

  18. Bob I was so sorry to hear the news. Georgina called yesterday afternoon to tell me. The first picture is the Heather I remember best. Our work together on Christmas Daddies is so dear to me. She made me laugh and enjoy the little things. She was a fighter and a strong woman with a good heart. My love to you and the boys at this worst of times. It will get better and she will always be with you in your heart.

The two of you are the true example of love and I know that this will be a hard time for you and your family but look to the good memories, share them with others and smile knowing that Heather is always with you.

  23. It seems my condolences of 7 may were lost in the cyberspace.
    I was writing:
    Les mots sont peu de choses dans ces circonstances.
    Bob, mes sincères condoléances ainsi qu'à toute la famille.
