I just learned of your loss from Kathleen and I wanted to pass along my sincere condolences to you. You were all so lucky and blessed to have such a wonderful and loving mother. I have fond memories of being at your house playing and I also remember visiting you in Chicago. I know you will carry memories of her and her love for you in your hearts forever and she will always be with you. I'm so sorry for your loss and hope that God will hold you all in the palm of His hands as you remember and celebrate her life and accomplishments.

Angie, I just read about the passing of your mom in the St. Barnabas bulletin. I know it has been such a long time since I have seen you but childhood memories stay forever. Your mom was such a wonderful person and a loving mom. As I look back, she loved being around for you children. What great memories you carry with you. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. And, I should add the attached photo shows what a beautiful lady she always was.

I am so sorry for your loss, Andy, Matthew, Angela, Suzanne, John, and the respective families. I have fallen very short on returning the wonderful blessings that Margaret gave to me. My "Guardian Angel" that helped me through a rough divorce and both she, and Andy helped me pack up and leave a home of 20 years. Her expertise and guidance was something that I needed so badly at that time of my life, the friendship and the good times that we shared some of them beforehand and some after the divorce and move were some of the funniest--girl times I had ever had. I loved her so for being such a good friend. I admired her good taste in everything from clothes, to decorating to baking, to furniture repair. I really don't think I'd ever met someone with not only that creative artful flair for life that also was just simply a brilliant woman. Love, and May God Bless You! Love, Sue and Joe

Dear Andy and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Margarets passing. My favorite memory of her is her laugh and her outgoing personality :) She was the life of any party she attended. My prayer for your family is that you find comfort and peace knowing that she is not hurting any longer. I bet she is playing cards with my favorite Aunt Mary Helen Baase by now :)
Sincerely, Patty (Hendrix) McIntosh
