  1. Dear Kate, Barb, Linda and Joan…I’m thinking about all of you as you adjust to the reality of your mom’s passing. I have the fondest memories of various occasions spent with your mom, but more specifically when the two of us played golf at Bearspaw and I could hardly keep up with her at age 88. She was feisty, bright, fun and ‘with it’ and always seemed ready for an ‘adventure’ (you come by it naturally). She was a woman who could mix and mingle with any age group and that’s not necessarily easy but she also seemed to thrive on the energy and enthusiasm of her daughters, extended family and grandchildren.
    We will all miss her.
    Love and hugs,
    Ginny

    Cilla and I send our sincere condolences on the passing of our dear and wonderful friend, Peggy. Her presence was always that of grace, dignity and beauty with a great sense of humour. Our hearts go out to her family. I am devastated that I am not able to attend her Funeral Service as I am scheduled for my doctors appointment at the same time – one that I have waited for a while. Peggy will be sorely missed by those of us who knew her and Walter well – a dignified and beautiful couple.
    With deepest regrets, Ed and Cilla McMullan
