  1. Gerald, Kevin and Vincent,
    I’m sorry to hear of my sister Margaret’s passing. I remember her as a gentle person who had a calm way about her. She always put her family first. We all loved our sister dearly and she will be sorely missed by us all. Rest in peace Margaret love from Agatha.

  2. Gerard, Kevin and Vincent,
    I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved mum. My Auntie Margaret was a lovely, kind lady. She was strong and independent. Her determination to meet adversity and move forward was an inspiration to us all. May her spirit live on forever. Rest in peace Auntie Margaret.

  3. Dear Gerald, Kevin and Vincent,

    I was so sorry to hear of your mum’s passing. I have so many great memories of her. She was such a wonderful person who was always so proud of her boys, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

    We were all so lucky to have her as our aunt as she always so interested in our lives and how we were getting on. Our parents were very, very fond of her.

    I will certainly be thinking of you all this weekend as Auntie Margaret is laid to rest.
