Hi guys! I've attached a couple of photos I took yesterday at Marg Bootland's Celebration of Life, at the Malahat Legion. I spoke to Ray and he said he wouldn't mind if I sent them to you, Dan, if you'd like to post them on the Periscope website. It was a lovely celebration of Marg's life with family and friends. The Quilting group that Marg belonged to up in Shawnigan Lake helped out with the lunch provided after the official ceremony and the video of her life with family and friends. It's quite the group of people up there, who are all very friendly and easy to meet. A lovely bunch!! Ray is planning on selling his mobile home and will be traveling across the country to live in Halifax, where he has family close by. We wish him all the very best in his travels and hope that he enjoys his new chapter in his life back east.

Also, left to honour her memory are her five grandchildren Emily, Ben, Finn, Lola and Avery. Marg and Ray enjoyed Navy life and spent 18 years as snowbirds after retirement. Marg was an active member of YSAG (Young Seniors Action Group) where she had many wonderful friends and followed her passions for quilting, painting and dancing. At Marg’s request there will be no service. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #134 on January 12, 2020.
