  4. David Baylis :

    Dearest Cousins,
    My heart is full of sympathy for you, though my mind does radiate with happy thoughts of your beloved mother and my dear aunt. Our times together were precious and I have fond memories of wonderful conversations over the years. She was my favorite auntie and I will forever cherish her kind words and loving ways. I could see the similarities between your mom and our sweet grandma, which were beautiful traits to behold. I shall always try to be deserving of sharing the same middle name.
    Stay close…
    Your ever lovin’ cousin, Susan (and David)

  5. To Brian and family- just wanted to send my greetings and offer my condolences on the passing of your mom. It sounds like she had a great life with her tribe. My parents are 95 and 97 and still going. It’s a rite of passage to lose a parent though. All the best. Nancy

  6. I was saddened to hear of your mothers passing. Your parents were always kind and gracious to me. I remember numerous trips to your property south of Calgary and always feeling welcome in your home. Your mother had her hands full with raising six boys but I never saw her being anything but kind and generous with the herd of friends that stampeded around your home. After raising my own family I now appreciate her example to what I was oblivious to as a teenager. Please accept my belated thanks for your mothers wonderful example.

  7. FAYE KEEVIL AND FAMILY :

    Sincere condolences to the Gregg family on Margie’s passing. Faye and Margie always thought of themselves as sisters in spirit if not in blood. Both of them have lived long and full lives, but Faye was still much saddened by the news.
