From: Brita Park
Relation: Bob helped my mother in Sunnybank

Bob Hendrie was motivated in all he said and did by service to others. What a legacy, what an example to all who were privileged to cross paths with him! Specifially, he was so very kind-hearted relating to my mother in her final year, in Sunnybank’s Poppy wing. His gentlemanly manner and firm grounding in the all encompassing love of God made the services he led for the elderly a highlight of their week.

From: John and Joyce Goodrich
Relation: Friends

Our deepest sympathy to you and your family Nan.
