To Margaret's Family. My deepest sympathy goes out to you all, at this very sad time, in your loss of Margaret. Although I had lost touch with Margaret when she moved from London to Dundas, my wonderful memories of our little bridge club in Hickory Hills will remain with me forever. The four of us, Margaret, Jean Palmer, Chris Chisholm and I had lots of laughs and enjoyed good times together. Phyllis Wright Thomas
