Sincere sympathy to the siblings, family and friends of Master Warrant Officer Sean Robson. He passed Jan. 6. Master Warrant Sean Robson served Canada for 32 years. He performed tours in Cyprus, two tours in Croatia and two tours in Afghanistan. The Military and especially the PPCLI were more than a career for Master Warrant Officer Robson. The PPCLI was truly his Regimental Family and always first and foremost in his heart. I've had the privilege of spending time with Sean. He was a kind, compassionate man. He will be greatly missed.
Sympathy to the family and friends of Norma Blight (Carruthers), who passed unexpectedly last week. I had the privilege of knowing Norma since my teen years and still saw her occasionally at auction sales. She was a great lady. Everything she did, whether in her career, home or appearance, she “gave it her all". That quality carried through with her family and friends. She was a woman "who will never be forgotten” by those who were fortunate to know her.
