Dear Margo and family,
Bill and I are so sorry we cannot be with you to celebrate Calvin’s life. We have been thinking back on the wonderful times we had together after we met you and Calvin when we came to Nova Scotia. We had great times golfing at River Oakes, but especially our trips to South Carolina over the years, golfing, shopping, get togethers, and especially the Feb. birthdays Calvin, Bob & Bill. They are wonderful memories. Bill enjoyed the many golf tournaments he played with Calvin as a partner. Great times. Margo, Bill and I wish to extend deepest sympathy to you and your family.
God bless, Gerri and Bill

Take care, Debra

Kelly, was a great and kind cousin.
I loved golfing with him and Margo at River Oaks Golf Club and I was always very proud as he walked up to me with that big smile.
As my Mom (Emma) would say so fondly, “he was my birth cousin”, they both loved each other and the fact that they shared the exact same birth date.
He will be missed as he is loved.
Sending my sincere condolences to Margo and family.
Love Susan

Mr. Ritchie's Family,
So sorry to read of Mr. Ritchie's passing. He was the Manager of Sobey's Woodside when I worked there as a student in the 70's. He was such a nice man and I always enjoyed running into him years later. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Was great to see you and Calvin at Sobeys last year Margo. I have great memories of Calvin from our many many chats of golf and the children.
May he Rest In Peace and you be comforted with the many many memories you shared over your years together.
