I’m thankful to have known a woman as strong, loving, and warm as you. Not only did you always welcome me into your home, but you made me feel comfortable and always showed love. You loved talking about recipes and we’d share favorites. I remember how happy you were with the lasagna with the bechemel and told me all about it! We’d make plans to go shopping together, another shared interest of ours. You were one of a kind - and I will always have fond memories of our time spent together. I’m grateful to have known you. Rest easy.

Cousin Marguerite, I remember when I was a little girl being in awe of your beauty. But your outer beauty was only surpassed by your inner beauty. Your heart. Your kindness. Your understanding. Your compassion for others. You have left behind a legacy of love that will always be remembered. Rest easy now. I’m certain that my mother (your phone pal) and our entire family were there to welcome you home and I know that you will join them in watching over all of us until we meet again. Never goodbye, only so long. With our love and deepest sympathy, Cousins Linda and Steven xo

Aunt Marguerite;

I miss you so much. I always appreciated our call these past years, it was a moment that brightened up my day, more than you know. There are so many childhood memories with you that will never be forgotten. There is not a moment that will cross my mind when I think of you that will not put a smile on my face.

I know you are in a better place now and may you rest in peace.

You will always be remembered.

Aunt Marguerite;

Hearing of your passing was devastating to me. I prayed often that you would recover and we would have new memories together.

I remember in my younger years visiting you and playing with the dogs and how you always wanted to feed me! You were such a loving person and I will miss you dearly.

I bet you had all our family that has gone before waiting for you at Heavens door. Go rest Aunt Marg, you earned it.

Love you with all my heart,

To Aunt Marguerite,

Although we did not get to spend a lot of time together due to our locations. I will forever cherish the happy moments that we have spent. We will miss you and the ones that we have lost in the past. I love you Aunt Marg, may you Rest In Peace.

My Beautiful Sister,

This is one of my favorite pictures of you taken on your honeymoon. All these years later, I still laugh as I’m reminded of how I begged you to take me with you to Bermuda!

What I wouldn’t give for another day, another moment in time, but most importantly another phone call just to hear your voice. Oh, how I will miss your birthday messages!

I have so many regrets of the miles between us which kept us from spending more time together, but I will cherish the moments we did share. You will forever be imbedded in my heart, in every Carpenters and Johnny Mathis song and when I hear the word “Awe”.....You had the most compassionate heart and during our discussions would always say”Awe, that was so nice, or “Awe, poor thing” when feeling bad if someone was ill. In just that one word, your heart spoke volumes.

You fought so hard and for so long, we were your biggest cheerleaders, but God knew you were tired. You are finally at peace Marg and although I’m heartbroken——your suffering is over which is why I will choose to remember you as in this photo, happy and healthy.

It is not goodbye but so long for now,

With All My Love,

My beautiful cousin Margie (you always loved when I called you that).

We grew up together in a great family that we would always reminisce about. We have so many special memories together that are unforgettable. I know you loved the time we drove to Florida and my mom ordered breakfast with an accent and my father got mad at her. Going to Maine with cousins Carol and Johnny in a hurricane and even though the power went out we still had parties in our rooms. We shopped together, cooked together, laughed and sang. You are so special to me. You are the sweetest, kindest and most beautiful person both inside and out and I will never forget you. Say hello to our great family and I will see you again. This is not goodbye it is just so long for now. You struggled enough now it is time to rest peacefully.
We Will Always Love You.
