Dear Phil,
Our days were brightened whenever we happened to run into Margaret. We were always inspired by her kindness, her memory, her cheer, her tenacity, and her desire to help others. We have such fond memories of her and your father.
Our sympathy is with you and all of you family.
Pat and Jeanne Shanley

Aunt marge was a huge part of all us. She was a huge part of our family, many great memories as we grew. Marge and my mom Edith were very close. I hope there together now. She was the last survivor of all our parents, aunts and uncles. With love, may you all rest in peace. Dan and Sue

Dan - thanks. She loved your crew. You know that. They are all gone now. We were the lucky ones to have had such love and care.
