In Memory of Rob

Hello everyone, I know that I said I was going to be back to posting on December 16th but I was called back to Ottawa as soon as my exams were finished to say good-bye to my wonderful Uncle Rob who has been battling cancer for the past few years. As such I hope you guys understand that I am going to take a few weeks off from posting.

Sept 15th 1959 - Dec 16th 2011

 Rob was such a loving and caring person always putting other's happiness before his own. He is and was an inspiration, never wanting anything and always content with what he had. He has always been there for his family and has supported me in everything I have done. 

I wrote this on his wall but I want him to know that as long as I live he will be a part of me and even though everyday for the rest of my life I will be missing him, I have not forgotten that he has not been lost but will continue to be remembered and treasured. My own personal guardian angel. He was loved by all and will be greatly missed. I am glad that he is no longer suffering and in pain but able to rest in peace. 

I know this blog is meant for recipes but I hope you understand at this time that I am going to take a break from blogging and will probably not resume until the New Year. In that case, may you all have a wonderful holiday season and I will see you guys back here in 2012.

Sending my love out to all of you. Justine.


  1. This is beautiful Justine, and everything in it is true. I feel the same, he did so much for us and I will always love him and miss him for as long as I live. He will always be with us ♥

  3. Very nicely said Justine. I am sure that you will carry Rob with you in your life journey. From the few times that I spent time with Rob as a grown up I have to say that it was his sense of humour that I really enjoyed and will remember.
