    Our deepest sympathies on the loss of your Mom. She was warm, kind and always gave great advice when asked. She was a pillar of strength for me when my Mom passed. I always appreciated that! She started me off right in life by giving me a “Silver Spoon” as all fairy Godmothers do. It’s something I have always treasured. Our thoughts and prayers to all of you in the difficult months to come.
    Linda, John, TJ & Mathew

    So sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. She was one of the nicest people I have ever met & she did a magnificent job of passing this trait on to her children. I will never forget how welcome she made me feel on our Palm Springs vacation at her & Del’s Condo with them, Shell, Amanda, myself & Judd. I hope all the wonderful memories of your life together get you thru this sad time. She will never really be gone as long as you keep those memories close to your heart.

    Dear Kim, Shelley & Lee.
    We were so sorry to hear of Marge’s passing. We are currently out of the country and are sorry that we were not able to attend Marge’s funeral. Your Mom was a super friend to Clare and Ron. Clare so appreciated all Marge’s trips to Rockyview Hospital to visit her. Bob speaks very fondly of being over babysitting the three of you. I will never forget the wonderful bridal shower Marge gave me in 1974. She was a remarkably kind and vibrant lady. Please accept our sincere and hearfelt sympathy on the loss of your mother.

    Mary & Bob Funnell
