Each life is so very precious in this world but none more than the one we have held close to our hearts!
These are the lives that will stay with us forever.
God love and keep you all in his tender loving care. Caring and prayerful thoughts are with you all today.
Message from Sr Mary -
My loving prayer is with you all these days as you celebrate dear Margaret's life and giver into the eternal love of God where she will know no more pain and suffereing. Sister Rose tells me she has been such a valient woman of deep faith which I'm sure each of you will have some cherished memories inspite of her suffering. May you always know Margaret's value in your life journey and let her wisdom continue to speak to you as you adjust to life without her present in the day to day events.
May God's love for you all and for your dear wife, mother and grandmother, console you and help you through these days of letting go.
I remember Margaret as a beautifully caring, gentle mother and am glad our paths crossed in those early St Mark's days. Loving blessings on you all.

Please accept my most sincere sympathy in dear Margaret's death. She was a dear friend to me and although we have not been able to see each other for some time, I love and prayed for you all. God has asked big things of you all as He has of our family but none of our suffering will be lost! and dear Margaret will be welcomed to Heaven by my John, who suffered so much too.
I remember Margaret's love and faith in St Anthony! He will have greeted her home to Heaven with our Lady and all the Saints.

We returned from a holiday to learn that Margaret had passed away after her long illness. What a wonderful lesson she gave all of us on seizing life, making the most of it and living each day as a prayer.
Our sympathy and love to you.
Message from Merle Kenna - Friend in Australia
Terry, Thank you for letting me know about Margaret going to God. I thank God also for releasing her from the suffering, she certainly tried hard to make it easy for all you carers. So now she is at a restful peace.
I will continue to pray that you all will soon be able to carry on with your lives. I know all the grand children gave Margaret a lot of love and interest. I am sure they are all growing up. Again I send special sympathy ... thinking of you all.

However prepared we are for the death of someone close it is always a shock.
I hope you will be able to take time to grieve and remember. And that as you do so you will be surrounded by strong love and support.

Margaret was truly the 'valiant woman', loving, caring, faith filled and courageous. As you grieve for her, I pray that you may share in the peace that is now hers.

Dear Terry and Family
Thank you for the chance to be with you last week to celebrate Margaret's life and to farewell her.
I shall really miss her very much. She is already working on solving some problems for me and I'm sure she'll be with you all. The Mass was great and Marg would've been very proud of her Grandkids

Message from Gloria Bowler - Friend
I first met Margaret when I started working at Strawberry Fields II in October 1992. She immediately made me feel welcome and part of the team.
During the years we worked together, Margaret was always there for anyone who needed someone to talk to. We shared morning tea together, we also shared the teabag!! We both liked weak tea so to us that made sense - although some of the staff thought we were a bit strange.
Margaret often brought in home baked goodies to share, everyone enjoyed those. She loved baking, gardening and reading. She organized birthday/leaving parties for both staff and children - she made working fun. We also had good times at the work Christmas parties, one in particular aboard the Soren Larsen.
I will also remember Margaret for the kindness and understanding she showed to me and my family during a very difficult time in our lives. You always knew she would be there for you.
She is one very special and beautiful lady and I am proud to be able to call her "My Friend".
She will be missed by her famiuly and friends for a very long time but I am sure we all have some wonderful memories of her.
On leaving Strawberry Fields in September 1997 to return to Canada, I gave Margaret the following poem on an "Angel".
I paused for a moment to lift from the sand, a special gift from Natures hand. This cockle shell takes its time to collect memories for us to find. It reminds me of special times gone by, shared with good friends - like you and I.
