Desmond CuddyOur deepest condolences Bob and family. We know that you had a very deep love for your wonderful and beautiful wife, Mary-Alice. I can still see her dancing outside Barlovento's by herself and with others---it was an awe-inspiring sight which will be etched forever in my memory. I also remember fondly our short get-togethers at church each Sunday morning after mass and how you doted on her with such obvious love that it will always be an inspiration to us. May God bless and keep her forever in his warm and loving embrace. He has called her home and I'm sure she has already started a dance club in Heaven!

Peggy And Bob MacLeodOur sincere sympathy to you Bob and the family. It has been a difficult journey the last few years but I remember the happy times and in particular Mary Alice's love of Leonard Cohen. That music played for many hours and we either began to appreciate him to or distance ourselves from her room. Her dancing eyes extended to her love of movement and she was always ready for fun. May she rest in peace.
Sandra sherlockBob, so very sad to hear of Mary Alice's passing. Her KGH classmates were always so impressed by and grateful for how you lovingly cared for her and kept us up to date on her progress . I am wondering if she and Leonard have met up yet.
