From: Don & Judy Thomson
Relation: Margaret was my Aunt

From the far east coast (Nova Scotia) our hearts and prayers are with you. Though it’s been many years since I’ve been to Vancouver, I’ll always remember the summer (early 70’s) when I stayed with Margaret and George after my bus trip through the Rockies. We saw Margaret again in the mid 80’s when our children finally got to meet her. I will always remember how she would duck out for a quick smoke – thinking that George didn’t know – (but he once told me he knew but said everyone was allowed one secret vice)

From: Dianne Murphy
Relation: friend & banker for 20years

To George & Diane please take the time to look back and remember those special moments . She will always be with us in our hearts and in our thoughts. Margret was a very special lady to me and also to others. I will truly miss her. (no more hugs) Dianne

From: Jane Anne Thomson

Dear George and Diane and families:
It is with great sadness but with wonderful memories of times spent with Margaret and George in Toronto, Montreal and in Abbotsford. Wonderful holidays with them in Abbotsford : trips with Margaret to play Bingo over the border (the highlight was being introduced to 2000 strangers in a smoke-filled hall – as her visitor)..making chicken pot pies and playing Canasta….
I’m sure she’s playing cards right now with George and my Dad.

From: Dawn and Dave Lee and family
