Just to share one of my favourite memories of one eventful day when Bob was just a little guy.
It was a lovely summer day and the Barnes brothers, then known as Robbie and Ronnie, decided that they wanted to go for a ride. The fact that they were only three or four years old didn't deter this dynamic duo. They reached up and opened the car door. In those days people didn't always lock their cars. Then without giving much thought as to where they might go, they, the precocious little boys that they were, managed to release the parking brake. And much to their surprise and delight, or it might have been terror, the car started to roll. As it picked up speed, it rolled down the driveway, across the street and up onto a neighbour's driveway before it stopped. The two luckless joyriders were, it would seem, out of gas. So they had to walk back home all the while wondering if anyone had noticed.

Bob, you have been well loved and will always be missed. Memories of you will always put a smile on my face.

I love and miss you so much!, I will forever cherish all the memories we've had. I'd always like to spend the night at your house when I could, you'd spoil me with lots of candy as a kid and watch movie channels with me witch I didn't get at home . You took me fishing and went on atv rides all the time. Youd pretend to eat died house fly's and always try and fool me with your tricks. You were always happy! There is not a time were I seen you anger or upset. I would ride your new sled behind your house in the fields and you also gave me my frist sled I will always remember the times we had ! I love you Uncle Bob I'll be thinking about you. Cody Barnes

Uncle Bob,

When I think of the fun times I had up at the lake, one of my favourite memories was because of you. We decided that we would go tobogganing down one of the biggest back road hills I have ever seen and since it was such a monumentous hike back to the top, you loaded my brother and I up in the van after every run and drove us back up time and time again so we wouldn't run out of steam on the walk! Thank you so much for encouraging our playtime and having fun with us- I remember you laughing and smiling from ear to ear because we were having such a great time. You gave me the most incredible memory that I use to compare to all other toboggabing trips as THE BEST, and I will think about you everytime I'm out on the hills. Rest well.
