    Laurie, Bob and Carolyn,

    On behalf of my family, please accept our condolences on the loss of your mom. She was a lady of strength and character, able to handle adversity with poise and grace. I met her a couple of times this year and was of the impression that she was happy in her final years, enjoying the serenity of living on the acreage and reflecting on the accomplishments of her children and grandchildren.

    Bob, Laurie and Carolyn,
    I’m so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was always so happy and cheerful when ever I saw her, the last time being my mom’s 80th birthday party. May the memories you all have, and that happy smile she always had, help to mend your broken hearts. I know she will be watching over all of you. Thinking of you all.

    Our condolences to Peggy’s friends and family. We were next door neighbours for nearly 20 years while our children were growing up. Peggy generously let us use her barn and riding ring while we and our children learned to ride. She gave us lots of advice and assistance with the horses and was a true neighbour. She was a strong woman and was truly her own person. I am sure she will greatly missed.

    Pat, Mike, Dustin and Jesse
