    I’m so sorry to hear this. Margy was an amazing woman. I enjoyed the time we spent chatting and enjoying our bernese mountain dogs playing together. She will be missed.

    I remember her well, she did fantastic work for us on our furniture and was a very very nice person, I am very saddened she is no longer with us. She will be missed by many for her wonderful personality and courage.

    I’m so sad to hear this news. She did excellent work. She recovered our old rocking chair and a chair of my grandmother’s which I still meditate in. Rest in peace, Margaret. My condolences to her family and friends.
