From: Andy McNabb

Dear Rathwell Family, My heartfelt condolences and prayers for all of you for strength and comfort. Rob was my first pal, what with living just a few doors up the street. Many happy memories exist of jumping off the shed and garage rooftops and the annual leaf pile in the Colborne St. backyard, and always trying to catch Ted in a chase (he was too fast!). There is a heavenly hope, - that Christ died, so that if we turn to Him, we might have eternal life of peace and joy in heaven, and a relationship with Him now. May that reality be yours, and sustain you and your families. Romans 10:9 "that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:13 "for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

From: Joe and Sheryl Cayley

So sorry to hear of Rob's passing, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

From: Nancy and John Gemmill

Lucille and family: The happy memories you have of your husband and father will help you through this sorrowful time. My thoughts are with you all.
