  1. With prayers and deepest sympathy to a wonderful family at this sad time. It has been a blessing to know all of you through the years, especially Marguerite. She was a joyful person and shed sunshine wherever she went. There are too many memories to list here, but Margueritel will always have a special place in my heart. She gave me a tote bag years ago that I am very fond of. She was just thinking about me and bought it. There was no special occasion in my life, but she wanted me to have it. Every time I use it I think of Marguerite and our friendship of many years.
