Dear Driscoll Cousins,
Please know that we send our Love, Sympathy, and Prayers on Maggie’s passing. The one thing I am certain of is that Maggie loved her family very much. I kept in touch with her for the past several years and we talked on a regular basis. She was so proud of her nieces and nephews and what they have accomplished in their lives. When Maggie and I talked she made me laugh and we reminisced about growing up and spending time at Nanny’s house.
We will all miss her and may Maggie “Rest In Peace”.
Our love Always,
Jeannie and Paul Harrison

I was introduced to Maggie or as I simply called her “Magz”, approx. 30 yrs. ago when I started my journey with her sister. I asked Joanne do you think i will have any problem getting along with her. She said no I doubt it , except for one small thing. I said what’s that? She said she is a die-hard Yankee fan. Me being the opposite with the Red Sox. Oh boy!! It’s a rivalry that can cause feuds with the best of family’s. Throughout the years we would wish each other good luck throughout the season, both knowing fully well we really did’nt mean it. Respect came easy for the both of us. I helped her with her choice to move to NC, introduced her to the game of golf, traveled with her to see Arnie, Jack, and last but not least enjoyed many toasts raising our beer mugs together. Her love for family, dogs, & overall life in general was second to none. I will miss my sister-in-law “Magz”. See you in heaven! Love, Ricky
