    Dear Cathy and Family,
    So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was a wonderful woman. I always enjoyed seeing her in the office and catching up on her travels and the family she loved so much. I will be thinking of you during this difficult time.

  3. Dear Dave & Family,
    I wanted to offer my condolences on the passing Marg. She was always such a friendly neighbor. She was one of the first people I met, when I moved to my home in Charleswood. She saw me outside washing windows & came across the alley, to introduce herself. That really meant lots to me. I will remember you all in my prayers, during this difficult time.

  4. Dear Dave, Sandy and Cathy,
    Very sad that Margaret has passed away. She was a very spunky, fun engaging lady. She was also the last of the Antills in Canada.
    Condolences from myself, Carolyn and Ashley here in Toronto and Brianna in Margaret’s birthplace Montreal.

    Dear Dave, Sandy & Cathy:
    I have just accidently come across Marg’s death and am so sad to not have known sooner. When I moved to Calgary in 1953 I was fortunate to be able to move into the House in Rosedale with Marg, Joan & Ruth – they were such wonderful roomates to a teenager from the farm, She was a mentor and trusted friend, we went to each other’s weddings and kept in touch for several years after, but life sometimes interferes with friendship, I last saw her two years ago for coffee,she will always have a special place in my heart.
    Blessings to you all, you were her rock!
    Phyllis Coulter
