My sincere sympathy to Margaret’s family in your loss.
I had a longtime friendship with Marg and many happy memories beginning in Galt over 70 years ago. I remember the lovely sweaters she knit my children. By coincidence we both retired to Chelsey Park in London. Her balcony was always a floral showcase and at Christmas we enjoyed her decorations and teddy bears.
Sincerely,
Ruth (Kent) Chalmers
