    Sweet Margaret will be missed by so many. We're thankful that she was part of our lives and she treated JW and Miranda like they were her own grandchildren. Such a big heart and that big bright smile that she always seemed to wear. We love you Margaret and we'll certainly miss you. Glen we're praying for you and the entire family and you know that we're right here should you need anything at all. Love - the Sharpe family

    My heart is heavy loosing my Aunt Margaret. Thankful on my trips home to share love. Knowing she is dancing in the sky with my Sister and her niece Betty Knight Thurston gives me comfort. She was the one that named me and we always have had a special bond. Until we meet again, Fly flight Sweet Angel. You will be missed by all the hearts touched by that Amazing Sweet Nature. Prayers to all our family.

    I had known Margaret since grade school. We lost touch when I moved away but re-united friendship when I retired and moved back to Victoria 1995. I have never known anyone any sweeter or more genuine than Margaret. She will make a great contribution to the angel choir in heaven. She will always be in my memory and my heart.Until we meet again Margaret.
