Margaret was someone who lit up my day when she would come in to the hair salon . A special someone who would say " now how are you ? " . I was in disbelief to hear of Mararets passing , one of my most favorite clients . I can't say I know of the pain and suffering you her family are experiencing however , I even cried for half an hour solid . I just can't believe that she is gone . On the nice days out on the bike I will think of Margaret because she got me ! . She understood so much about everyone becasuse she felt and listened . A light has gone out of the world she will be sorely missed . With love Jason Gerken.

To Greg and family, I was shocked and dreadfully sorry to learn of Margaret's sudden and untimely death. Although I hadn't seen Margaret for many years I have never forgotten her, and often thought about her. She was a beautiful person inside and out, and she was an intelligent and hard working student. My thoughts are with you all at this terrible time. Lots of love, Pam Gilmour
