    My sympathy is with your family in the passing of Maggie. I remember when she was in charge of remodeling our church back in the days. I always liked looking at her paintings.

    Bruce and Mike, my warmest thoughts and prayers are extended to you and family. Both of your parents were very special people and had an important impact on me during their years in Kenbridge. Mrs. Love was a lovely lady that made all feel welcome when with her.

    Maggie was a joy to know. I have several of her wonderful paintings in my home and they will always remind me if her wonderful wit and spirit. My condolences to her family. She and Clarence were dear to all.

    Bruce and Mike: Sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. She was always such a pleasure and sharp as a tack. Many memories of my mom, your mom and Jane Clarke in the days of junior golf. The Kenbridge folks have certainly lost two gems this week.
