Sandra & Bob were acquaintances, then friend's before Rick & I moved to Cobourg due to the active business & social events of the Bay of Quinte Funeral Association. It was after one of those Conferences we were attending that Bob called Rick to ask him if he wanted to come & work for him. After a couple of visits we moved to Cobourg. That was the best decision of our lives & remains so to this day.Bob & Sandra welcomed us with open arms. Assisting us in any way possible. Always checking in with us over the years asking if we were happy & if there was anyway they could help.Rick & I have such respect, appreciation & gratitude. MacCoubrey's was never just a job or a place to work. We felt like an important part of the business, part of the Colborne & Cobourg communities, part of the family.MacCoubrey's is such a huge part of our lives & always will be.Sandra's death is a huge loss for everyone who knew her, but the memories & love she shared will comfort you as she continues to watch over you. Love, Health, Peace ,Blessings to Kay, Sharon, Janet & Scott & your families. Your mom Sandra loved each one of you. You were her joy. We will keep Sandra & Bob always part of our life memories with love & gratitude.
