Funeral Notice


  1. Dear Faye, Watching the service brings not only a well of tears but also heartfelt memories of Cob visiting our house on a Wednesday night. Cob named Sandra and I “Pete and Repeat” and over the years his comments did a great deal towards building the confidence we both have in ourselves today. He will always remain in mine and Sandra’s hearts as the kind, blunt, but honest man he was.
    Love you Cob & Faye xoxo
