Flowers are blooming

Spring is in the air

Yet nothing seems right

Because you’re not here.

 

The sun still shines

The birds still sing

Yet nothing seems right

Not a single thing.

 

Our hearts will heal

Time heals all wounds

Our memories will hold us

Till we meet again soon.

 

Just know you are loved

The love will never fade

As we lay you with Pop

And cherish memories we have made.

    We are so sorry for the lost of your mom. Marg was a wonderful person we enjoyed her company so much when she lived here at the Highlands, NL. Memories of her will always put a smile on our faces. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Our family is generally cautious when meeting new people, but I speak for all of us when I say that we all fell in love with Marg the moment we met her. 
    
    Marg was one of the sweetest people we have ever met, and she felt like family from day one. 
    
    We will all miss her a great deal. 
    
    Shirley, Russ, Diane, Wade, Cody and David.

    Agnes & Ernest Madore
    The first time I met Marg she was hosting a card game in their home shortly after moving to Highlands. Her toy poodle (Mandy) came running to me as soon as I was in the door. Being the dog lover I am and her being so cute I scooped her right up and she very promptly peed on me. Poor Marg was mortified but at the same time I could see the laughter in her eyes. We became fast friends as did Ernest and Gerry. When they became our neighbors we could have never known how blessed we would be. We spent so much time with them! I can honestly say that over the years we became a part of the family. We missed them terribly when they moved back to Ontario but we were lucky enough to visit there a few times too. To all the family, please accept our deepest condolences and know that we share in your sorrow. Take comfort in knowing that she is now with your Dad and at rest. God bless you all.
