Dear Phyllis & Midge,
I am truly sorry to hear about your Aunt Margaret. I remember her from Dr. Groseclose's office and she still had that beautiful smile. God's bless you for all the special care you gave her.

Our love goes out to Margaret's family. She was, like Father Paul said yesterday, a perfect blend of Martha and Mary. May light perpetual shine on her.

Margaret was a generous, loving, godly woman. I knew her for only a few short years, but I loved her nonetheless. May God bless you with comfort, with tears, and with many memories of your beloved Margaret.

To Margaret's family,

I am so sorry for your loss. Margaret was always so kind to me and was so welcoming to all at St Thomas. I know she will be greatly missed.

We are so sorry for the loss of such a wonderful and loving member of St. Thomas. Margaret was truly a blessing.

Margaret was the one who oriented me to the supervisor role at CHRV. She was a fine Christian lady as well as always the patient advocate. Whenever there was a question, Margaret would say" Now what's the right thing for the patient?" She taught us much !

to the Tear family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I remember Margaret very well and loved her as a friend and as my grandfather Dr. A. M. Groseclose office nurse. I will miss her. you are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless your family.
