    Your Mom was a very special friend to me. I am going to miss her warmth and her wit. She teased me endlessly and loved me mightily. We used to tell people that we met at pole dancing class! But the truth is I met Marge the first week I was in Calgary and we were stuck with each other for 20 years.
    She loved the three of you fiercely. Connor was the light of her life and her absolute joy. He’s a lucky little guy to have known such love.
    I am blessed to have known her.
    May flights of angels guide her to her well earned rest.
    Love, Lynda.

  3. Dear David;
    I just wanted to offer my condolences on the passing of your mom Marge. She was such a good friend to me and I will truly miss her. I knew Marge through my time working and worshiping at St.Matthew’s. She always took the time to listen and offer some sage advice and words of encouragement I especially loved her strong spirit and fiery nature.
    Lynda and Marge and I enjoyed several years of attending Stage West Dinner Theatre together. These were very pleasant evenings.
    I was so sad when she suffered her stroke and was very concerned about her condition afterward and what she was facing in long term care. God had another plan for her, a good plan, to take her home. Her spirit is free now and you have great memories of a wonderful lady which will endure after the grief has passed.
    Peace to you and your family.
