SMOLEN. The family of Robert (Bob) Smolen would like to express our extreme gratitude to all who turned out on a bitterly cold day to applaud Bob’s funeral departure from Denver Village Hall, on Tuesday April 6. Also, thanks for all the phone calls and sympathy cards received. These were a great comfort to all the Smolen family. A big thank you to Mick for his contribution by riding Bob’s motorbike all the way to Mintlyn, to A J Coggles for their excellent service and to Louise Hepburn for her caring presentation of the proceedings.
