Thank you

Life is slowly going back to some sort of normalcy.
I am humbled by the responses from my readership of this blog.
My last entry on Heather is by far the most viewed blog posts, it is comforting to know that a small part of her life legacy has been read around the world.

I am also very thankful to the wonderful staff at Middleton Funeral home 
who allowed Rudy to be a part of her service. I am sure it will help him get some closure as well.

African Violets were front and center at her service, as they were such a big part of her life. A big thank you to her friends at both Annapolis Valley African Violets Society and First Halifax African Violet Society for the beautiful violets provided.

To the staff of the Victoria Order of Nurses (VON), the palliative care team, our family doctor, Dr Drysdale and his staff, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 98 and all the friends that pitch in with help and support: A huge thank you, we would never been able to keep her at home as per her wishes till the end without you.

So what is next ? I have a few more projects on the back burner for the shop;
A proper bottom cabinet for my antique tool chest, a boring till of some sort, another style of saw bench and possibly a bigger work bench... down the road.

Meanwhile, there would be life's celebration of Heather taking places here, in Halifax and later in Ottawa, which Rudy and I would attend.

Heather and I being goofy, 2004

Next posts would be back on woodworking.
Again I thank you for your support

Bob and Rudy, helping each other getting thru this.


  1. Hi Bob,
    I think your first project should be something that Heather wanted that you never got around to.

  2. Hi Bob,
    good to read something from you.
    I wish you all the power which is needed.
    Looking forward to read about your future projects and to chat from time to time. Would be a pleasure for me.


  3. Bob,

    Thanks for the update, typing with tears in my eyes.
