    So sorry to hear of the loss of Mrs. Ramsay. I have very fond thoughts and memories of her, sitting in her chair, knitting away on one of her many projects, with Paula and I, doing whatever we were doing at the house after school at RT Alderman…..long, long time ago. Many many memories of “Don and Peggy” over the years I have known you all. I know she will be sorely missed by everyone as she was a truly lovely woman. I offer my deepest heartfelt thoughts and loving wishes to Mr. Ramsay, Paula, Patti and Kathi. Of course to Peter, Ian, Wayne, Ben, Thomas, Kendra and all the other grandchildren and great grandchildren too. So glad you have a big loving family to help you to learn to live without her, and hold her in your hearts forever. I am holding you all in my heart…………Hugs to all……Belle

    Don and Family
    Please accept our deepest sympathy on the passing of Peggy.We have so many cherished memories related to her.Her hospitality to us when we were transferred to Calgary in the late 60s knowing nobody in that city.she and Don showed up at our motel on Mc Leod Trail bearing a bucket of KFC in TWO cars.Why two cars?They told us to keep the second one(Peggy`s) unti we got settled in with our three young children.Seeds of a friendship that has flourished to this day were planted.There are so many other happy memories of Peggy ~~Standard Life get~togethers~~nights at the 400 club~~hillarious games of Bridge with friends~~Harvest Festvals in Cayley and at the Ramsay`s and the presentation to Peggy of a live chicken courtesy of “One Eyed Sam“ from a local Hutterite colony !!!!There were many more.

    We will miss you ,Peggy,but the fond memories will last a lifetime.

    Eternal rest grant to her,O Lord and may perpetual light shine upon her.May she Rest in Peace
