Marg Bootland's Cel of Life at Malahat Legion

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.

Ray you look understandably heartbroken. However, you look well...I would recognize you anywhere almost 30 years later.
