Condolence & Memory Journal

Marguerite was my best friend for many years. We could share our joys and disappointments and it would remain confidential. We could laugh together and cry together. Enjoying one another’s company and having fun was our main goal.
I miss her voice and our chats. I’m sure she is singing in God’s choir. Hope to join
her there in the same chorus. You are a cherished memory.

George, Pat and I extend our deepest sympathies to you and your family. Half the fun of going to the Walnut Street Theater was spending time before and during the show with both of you. We'll always remember the time we shared at your shore home. Marguerite was warm and gracious with a wonderful sense of humor. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Maggie, my much loved cousin. I will greatly miss our frequent lengthy conversations of shared recipes, politics, humor but mostly our trips down memory lane together of family history, Hampton and our beloved ancestors. I'm sure you are with them now. You leave a void in my heart. Love you
