Sincères condoléances pour la perte de Robert. Je garde de bons souvenirs de lui. Il avait un bon sens de l'humour et c'était intéressant de parler avec lui.
Vous lui avez rendu un bel hommage par cette nécrologie. Cela m'a aussi beaucoup touché que vous nous avez inclus.
Gros câlins. Cousine Raymonde xox

Quelltet Family

Dear family of Robert,

Robert was loved by us Christians in the church on Ottawa.
When I came to meet I also was new to Canada still. Robert invited me one Lords Day after the meeting to worship the Lord to his family for dinner. I met his parents and aunt there then. It was very precious.
To have him around was ever dear and His helpfulness and kindness unprecedented. We miss him.
Wishing you to be comforted that Robert has entered into the joy of the Lord for ever and that you all will join him again in the day of the Lord’s visitation. He is near us, in our hearts and mouths, the Lord Jesus Christ.

What can I say, I am so sorry for your loss. Robert was a character...we all remember him well. Roxanne, Alex and I cannot make the funeral but we are there with you, thinking about you and loving you.

Hang in there and hang on to each other. I will hug you when next I see you.

My deepest condolences to Robert's family with much love and many blessings. I am a sister from the Church in Ottawa. I knew Robert since 1992. He loved the Lord Jesus and the scriptures in the Bible and now he is resting in the Paradise of God.
Much grace to all.
