    Dear Brooke,
    Know you are in our thoughts and our hearts. Your mom was an angel, always taking in Hayden, and being there for him when we could not be. Although we didn’t know her well, Hayden has shared so many special times about her with us, we feel like we did. She will always hold a special place of love and care in our family. Her compassion, acceptance and love made all the difference.

    It was 45 years ago that 3 scared kids ( Peggy, Leigh and I ) moved to the big city of Carman. Peg and I formed a bond/friendship that will never be forgotten. We went and did everything together…well until I became the 3rd wheel after the boys discovered her..haha. When we would meet at the Legion, we always had the same stories to tell about those days ….and always enjoyed the same laughs! But the stories never ever got old! I have a picture up in our garage along side all my favourites…it is taken in front of your house during Freshie Week with Peggy as my “mentor”. She was more than that to me….Peggy was my first best friend!! Hugs go out to you
    Brooke…hope we can have a Peggy Day in the Legion some day. Our thoughts are with all the Soutars as well during this most difficult time.

  6. Dear Brooke and Family,
    Although I only knew your Mom through times we met at meetings at work, we talked about daughters and she always showed pride and love for you only a mother could have. She was a fine lady with a bright smile and positive attitude which will be missed by all. Please accept my Sincere Condolences.

  8. Deep condolences to the Soutars and Russells. What a void the passing of our Peggy has created. A friend of the family almost thirty years Dale and Peggy always added the special joy whenever they walked in the door at various gatherings. We all know that Peggy already has them laughing up there where she is sitting back and having a cool one with her many friends and family.

  9. To Brooke and Family
    Our family were close neighbors and friends of the Callaways at Priddis. We met you and your mom and dad at sleigh rides, and parties out at the Callaways. We always enjoyed these evenings and your folks were always full of laughs and good times. Our thoughts are with you at this painful time. Your mom was a special woman who was fun loving with a big smile.

  10. Bob, Rick ,Sandy and Brooke and all your families: Words can never express the thoughts or feelings on losing a family member, especially when it’s your Mother or your Sister . Lives and time spent together will be forever remembered and cherished. Peggy’s impact on others is seen in the comments from her friends and acquaintances. She left her mark in this World.
    She did her Family proud.
    I offer my deepest condolences to all
    of you. May God Bless.
