  • The 5 Lundin siblings from Osoyoos remember the MacTavishs fondly.
    I remember Mrs MacTavish, in church, somehow singing about the notes, which was so beautiful. As a child, I thought this was a normal thing, but never heard that again.
    I also remember the boys( especially Ron) were the ones to beat in Sword Drill!
    May your many happy memories help to comfort you at this time.
