I am fortunate to have met Margaret a little over three years ago, age 98. It amazed me to witness a 'true lady' in every sense, with intelligence, strength of character, wit, faith, and still maintain a gentle spirit so full of love. We enjoyed many card games, in the comfort of her lovely beach home. One really understood Margaret's personality and true colors, playing card games, learning what she could get a way with....lots of fun. Her son Michael, who expertly managed her several years of 24/7 care, maintained a very close relationship with his mother, ensuring all her needs were not only met, but often exceeded. Margaret was able to enjoy so many great caregivers, who allowed her to travel, dine, shop and enjoy life to her fullest, until her very peaceful passing. She remains a very strong presence in all of our hearts....

I’m sorry that I have not met Margaret; however, I have heard wonderful stories about this lovely lady for the the past 3 years. Meeting Mike and getting to know him gives a good indication of the loving, strong lady she was. May Margaret Rest In Peace❣️
