  • RIP Uncle Bob- I haven’t seen him in many years, and can’t say that I know any of my cousins, but my heartfelt condolences are with them all. I am George Plourde’s youngest daughter.

  • My love and prayers to you all. Love him so much. I remember those beautiful blue eyes and awesome smile. So many happy times with him and your family. Fun times on the pond in Plainville and the time we visited you in Ohio. My parents were very close to him and your mom. I will miss him and the happy times we had together. He was very sweet to my son.He was so proud of you all! Love, Kathy

  • Elena and family,
    My heartfelt condolence upon the loss of your father. Elena, although we’ve only known each other since you started your job at MWM, I admired the love and care you had for your dad. You were a good daughter.

  • Such a wonderful person and great guy to talk with about any topic…but especially about all of you – his kids and grandchildren. Jim and I spent many hours with him at my parent’s house and I also had the pleasure of working with Uncle Bob. Always one of the first people in the door and the last to leave! My father so appreciated all he did to keep things running smoothly no matter how many hours it might take to get the job done. I’ll always remember his infectious laugh and beautiful blue eyes. Thinking of all of you at this difficult time. Love, Kim and Jim

  • Our Love and Prayers go out to all his family. Time heals all wounds and the Mercy of GOD is Great. Luana loved her dad, How we loved Luana and we had the pleaser of meeting him through her on many occasions. God Bless you
