I am devastated to learn of Margaret's passing. I was a classmate of Margaret's at The Putney School for three years. Margaret was always a bright shining light, full of joy and humor that she readily shared with those around her. Margaret decided to go to Paris after graduating Putney, and inspired me to do the same. In this way Margaret changed my life. There are no words to express the enormous loss. Margaret was a gem pure and simple. I wish her family strength and comfort during this extraordinarily difficult time.

Dear Sampson, I am deeply sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Margaret was a beautiful, kind and gentle soul. I feel fortunate to have known her for a minute when y'all lived in Durham. She could always inspire and was such an interesting and creative person. Remember how much she loved to play games? May you move through this period with grace and know that you are loved. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” xoxo

I so treasure of my many talks with Margaret. We could laugh together, we could cry together, and I could hold her when she was afraid.

This girl with the shiny brown hair and beautiful smile became my friend in first grade at Highlands Day School in Birmingham, Al. We always enjoyed spending weekends together,either at her super modern house or at Days Bend, we loved playing hide and seek. Her father, John, always looking sharp in his seersucker suits and hat was a family friend as well. We grew apart over the years, lived in opposite corners of the country, yet I will always remember her as a smiling, enthusiastic, accomplished person.
