    So sorry to hear of Margaret’s untimely passing. I remember Margaret with great fondness, especially when Irene Robinson (Steele), Margaret and I would take long walks with our children when they were babies, and spend the days at the beach. We go back a long way and had a great friendship. She also looked after my daughter Mary Louise for a bit when I returned to work. I especially remember all the birthday parties for our children and the fun that all the parents had then as well.
