    With deepest sympathy as you remember Robert.”

  • I am sending love and sympathy to all of Bob’s family I have known the McCrae family since I have owned the house in Hull. The senior McCraes— Alice and James were always so good to me and helped me so often as I navigated the ownership of a large old home on the ocean. I could never repay their kindness.
