I was so saddened to hear about Marge, I knew your mother for a very long time. We had a lot of fun down at the beauty shop for many years. She was a wonderful lady and a good friend. She alway s remembered my birthday with a card. I know she will be sorely missed. Please accept my deepest sympathy in your loss , Love Ursula

To the Family and Friends of Margaret Brykalski,

Words cannot begin to give you the peace and comfort you truly need at this time but I would like to express my great sorrow at the unexpected loss of Margaret.

I did not know Margaret but I do know her daughter, Jan, and how very important family means to her, So I can only believe that there is a ribbon of love that surrounds the Brykalski family and that it extends beyond siblings, children, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, etc. to embrace friends as well. I pray that this ribbon, that may have been loose times in the past, has beens tightened now. I encourage you to hold on to it as I am sure Margaret is holding on to this heart-string from heaven. Though she is not physically here, may her love and light continue to impact your lives and live on forever in your hearts. This has been my prayer for you, who deeply feel her loss.

And as you lay her to rest, may God grant her eternal rest and peace. May you find some peace and comfort in knowing that she is already a great advocate for you before the throne of God, Do not hesitate to lean on her, especially during moments of grief. She is there for you, ever interceding to our Heavenly Father.

Sincerely in Christ,
Gina Dias

We cant say enough about what a wonderful woman Marge was, and how much she meant to our family. We are grateful for the lunches she shared with our father. It was something he really looked forward to having. She will be missed, and was a true treasure to our family.

I like to think that Marge, Frank, my dad and mom, are now sitting around a table, having snacks, and talking about whatever they talked about when we visited and weren't allowed at the adult table.
