    Peggy was our neighbour for many years. She was a lovely woman who graciously
    hosted the block BBQ every Fall. She was a go getter with so much spirit.

    Just heard of your Mum’s passing, Patti, Bill, Hugh & Bobby. I am so sorry that I missed the funeral, I am not in touch since we left the Ranch & moves to Canmore. As a child growing up at the —KC, I loved your Mum & Dad, (“Thether” was my name to Bill Senior.) I can almost smell Peggy’s doughnuts & doughnut holes, what a memory, weren’t they the best. I could smell them from next door at the —KC. Riding, swimming, water skiing & so much more that we all shared out there, thanks to our parents! A perfect childhood at the —KC. Your Mum & Dad, always so kind, took such an interest in what was happening in all our lives as kids, then as teenagers. I will always have very fond memories of your Mother, such a very, sweet, dear lady, always laughing. Hugs to you all at this difficult time, wish I could have been with you all! XO
