Dear Pro, John, Ann, Allen and Martha and family,
We were so sorry to hear about the passing of your sweet mom. We have a lot of good memories of fun times visiting you in Edgewater Park. We love you and will keep you all in our hearts and prayers.
Tina James (Ernestine), John James, Elaine James Gooch and Lisa James Lockwood.

I was so sorry to see that your Mother has left us. You can certainly be comforted in the fact that you gave such wonderful care. You were so devoted to her very detailed dressings. I was impressed with your compassion and patience. She had a sparkle despite enduring so much. It was a pleasure to take care of her. Anne Edwards, M.D.

With her birthday upcoming, I thought of the times we celebrated her birthday while playing bridge around each others tables. I think of her delight and especially her laugh when we would light the candles. She was one of the sweetest people in the world and I am so glad I had the opportunity to know her. As a newcomer to the island in the mid 90's, she taught me a lot about the history of Edgewater Park and how most of the residents are related. I loved her stories of moving her young...

My sympathy to Margaret's devoted family. We will miss her very much. She was a good neighbor here at The Village and was cheerful in the face of her trials. It was gratifying to see such loving care from her family.

Margaret was a sweet friend and will be missed.The Village will not be the same without her!
