I would like to give special thanks to the staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Dialysis unit who did everything they could to care for Bob during the past five months. I would also like to thank London PD Clinic and Medicine Hat PD clinic for their exceptional care throughout the past few years as Bob progressed through this illness. A special thanks goes out to Bob’s children Garry Rushton(McDermid) for his devoted attention to taking care of my needs at this time. He has done his father proud. Tammy McMeechan and Marlene McDermid have been by my side through the entire time of Bob’s hospital stay and it has helped me and Bob through this difficult time and I am very greatful for them both. Thanks to all those who have been graciously offering their support. Details of the Celebration of Life will be posted soon on the website as well as on social media.
