    I have many fond memories of Margaret – from our high school years and beach vacations with our daughters, to our 50-year high school reunion 3 years ago. She was a true friend during times some very difficult times and will be missed. Much love and condolences to Wendy and her family.

    Aunt Margaret, the toughest & strongest person I ever knew. She took no nonsense from anyone! But Aunt Margaret was always there for me…to listen, provide wisdom, give encouragement. I miss you very much!! I continue to keep you, Wendy and family & friends in my prayers.

    Aunt Margaret was so sweet, so sassy, & I see a lot of that in our daughter Emma Grace who shares a birthday on Sept 26th. I have great memories of going to the beach, skiing, & driving in her convertible with the top down & music blaring. I used my first computer at her house & attempted riding my first skate board in her basement. Her smile always made me smile. We share a great love for animals & will happily donate to her favorite charity in her honor. We love you!!

    Wendy, I’ve been trying to contact your mother for months.When the latest recording came on,I felt that she must have dief because she always kept in touch no matter what. I googled her name and found the picture of her I took last time she came to see me. Your mother a wonderful,kind,responsible and generous LADY! We loved our animals and I was her hair stylist since 1993. She always loved you and your kids much and you were always such a huge part of the conversation. Please call and tell me what happened. SHE IS SURELY missed by all. Michele and Lulu

    Dear Wendy, firstly I’m very sorry about your loss, PRAY for you. Margaret was a lovely lady as I remember her. I know that she was interested in getting in touch with me last year I think, so I wrote her an e-mail, but she didn’t reply. Maybe she was sick and in hospital already? Hope you are okay.
