    Dear Sherry,Ian and Allen:
    We were saddened to hear of your Mom`s passing.
    I have many memories of working with your Mom at the Eaton`s Order office in Alliston in the 60`s.
    We had an elderly gentleman who would come in and he would get Margaret and I mixed up.
    Margaret would laugh when he would ask me how Elgin was and if the asparagus was a good yield.
    Margaret was a lovely lady and will be greatly missed,
    Alvin and Helen Fraser

    With fondest memories of Margaret. The Blakely farm was always a home away from home for John when he first came to Canada. Many of his days off from work were spent with Elgin and Margaret helping with whatever they were doing on the farm and loving it. We have many happy memories of square dancing in the barn and good times spent with Margaret and Elgin over the years. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the Blakely family. Keep your memories of Margaret close to your heart where they will live forever.
