Now through May 31, 2015, Fairchild Tropical Garden is host to a garden exhibit of artist Chihuly's majestic glass sculptures. I look forward to seeing this exhibit in a few days. I visit the Fairchild gardens often to see collections and exhibits, take the tram tour and partake of other public events taking place at the time. In January Fairchild will host its third year of concerts on the lawn. I have honored beloved family members with a tribute brick placed in the Commemorative Brick Pathway which marks the entrance to the Fairchild garden. My visit to Fairchild events always begins as I walk along this pathway. A tribute brick in honor of Margaret has been placed in the Garden near others.
Wishing all who loved our Margaret a Christmas filled with love.

My sincere sympathy to Margaret's family and friends. I knew Margaret through Great Decisions, a study group we attended for years. Her insights on the world and other cultures were wonderful. She was an amazing listener . I miss her! Marilyn Dysinger

We were shocked and saddened to learn of Margaret's passing

I will always remember the kindness she showed to others, such as checking on my wife's aging parents on a regular basis. She took us on a personal tour of the Winston Link photography exhibit of steam locomotives at the Eastman House-who else would have even remembered my interest in the iron horse (trains)? She also shared her interest in riding actual horses during a tour of an equestrian facility in Penfield. She had a green thumb, and many of the plants that she gave us are thriving in Maryland. She was very bright, and had a wide range of knowledge about many subjects. I really enjoyed just talking to her.

Our sincere condolences to her family. She will be deeply missed.

My dear friend Margaret was brilliant, loyal, and kind to a fault. We met in Spanish class at U of R 40 yrs. ago and instantly hit it off, our bond originally formed by our both having lived in Mexico. That bond later grew out of a similar sense of humor and zest for Life. Our escapades ranged from common place to legendary and I feel truly blessed to be left with so many great memories.

Margaret was passionate about her many interests and volunteered selflessly. She loved her sisters and friends, the smell of fresh ground Arabic coffee, her garden and horses, and was adventurous in her taste in food. She lived all over the world and embraced each different culture and the people she met there like she embraced Life; with compassion, curiosity, and intelligence.

We read the same magazines to discuss what we thought important in a world " of substance" as she put it. I will miss her each time I check my mail and E-mails for her caring notes. I valued her as one of my most important sounding boards.

Margaret, characteristic of her kindness, checked on my aging parents most Sundays for over 20 yrs. She let Bob and I know all was right with what mattered. It was easy to take for granted the positive spirit she extended to others because she gave it so freely. Her kindnesses stand alone and will remain imprinted on our personal memory forever. She remains eternally my dear, brilliant, kind friend Margaret. I will profoundly miss her and will always remember her in friendship and with love.

My sorrow is lessened by the heartfelt words of others here. I remember watching her ride in Mexico, driving through France in a car that smelled of cheese, our wine bottles clinking under the seats. . . museum hopping down the west coast of Florida. How I miss this wonderful woman who kept me laughing, humble and curious.
