Dr. A. Marguerite Archibald (Swan)
Dear Janet, Stuart, Ian and Merrin,
Roxieanne and I send sincere sympathy and prayerful best wishes on the home going of your dear mother. I remember her particularly from her many activities at Knox Church where she was a blessing to one and all. I also remember each of you as you grew up and I was just a bit older, as well as the times in both our family homes. Your dad's help in linking me with work in the high Arctic during student days is another precious memory.
We give thanks with you that after her long and very meaningful life she now is at home with the Lord. May He continue to bless each of you in this new chapter in your lives.
My condolences -- it has been a few years since I saw either you or your Mom, but both your Mom & Dad stand out as so exceptional of the many patients I had the good fortune to take care of for a while. They each contributed in their own unique ways to our great country and were such thoughtful, gentle people. I am sorry for your loss and saddened that I was unable to be there today.
My very best Philip Hebert MD
Dr Archibald enjoyed our music programs for many years, and I had some wonderful talks with her over that time. She was a most interesting lady, and I truly enjoyed going to 3rd floor and seeing her in the front row for our programs. I will truly miss her.
May she rest in peace.

Dear Stu, Janet and Merrin:
An amalgam of sadness and joy indeed. The final good-bye and yet the knowledge that in our Lord's grace through Jesus, this is the step into a new life, a new inheritance! I truly appreciated both your Mom and your Dad. When I was a young fellow in med school they made me feel like I was a somebody. I shall always remember your Dad's kindness in providing me with a summer job in the Arctic for two seasons: an unforgettable experience. Your Mom was a woman of faith and showed remarkable verve in work and in ministry. I wish I could have come to the memorial service today but unfortunately I'm working on the west coast of James Bay at present. May the comfort of the Holy Spirit be yours at this time, and for the entire family.
Janet, I am so sorry to hear of the sad news. I know you will miss her everyday. She was so much part of your life. Many HUGS.
