While working at the VA, she had perfect punctuation, sentence structure and spelling in all her writings, which were many. It’s funny to me that this comes to mind now, but it became her proud trademark. After all, there are so many other memories to mention here. She always had a smile for you. We met for luncheons and breakfasts on a monthly basis for years. She was a delight each and every time. As a treasured friend, she indeed, will be missed .

Although I was quite young at the time, I have fond memories of visiting Margaret and her family with my Stepfather, Margaret's brother Howard Diehm. I so enjoyed listening to such a talented group of musicians and remember the joy on everyone's face during these fun family gatherings. Margaret was always so kind and shared many stories of the family whom she loved so dearly. If she isn't dancing with the angels, she's definitely playing the music for their dance! ♥♥♥

I remember meeting Eve, when she trained me as an LB&I secretary at IRS.
I am grateful for the expertise she imparted & her friendship. I am so sorry 💔 for her & her family's loss. You are in my prayers and thoughts 🙏.

Well, what do I say Aunt Margaret. You were my sponsor for my Confirmation. I was so happy to have you stand by me. Not only were you my sponsor, i took your name as my Confirmation name. Therese Anne Margaret Freiburger. I enjoyed when my Mom and Dad took us to see you and Uncle Kenny. We played with Danny, Pete, Eve, Virginia and Caroline (Lammy). I will cherish those memories for ever. I really love to listen to you play music. I am so happy I saw you a couple months ago at St. Vincent Church. I was so happy when we were able to share a hug before Mass. Thank you for being a part of my life. I love you Aunt Margaret.
Our Lady of Grace Pray for us.

A MOMENT AT DAYBREAK 

by Mary Couch

A pale pink rosebud 
trembles in summer’s wind, 
shakes dew from its petals.

A monarch’s tiny perch, 
it welcomes the dawn’s 
wispy blush across a muted sky.

Caught by a gentle breeze, 
butterfly floats from its perch 
to be swallowed by morning light.

She too floats forth to greet the light, 
we will meet her again around the bend.
