Dear Tom, +
I forgot to bring the sympathy mass card with me to the funeral home. However, I want you to know I am having a mass said for Margaret Rose on June 19,2017 at Mt. St. Joseph. It will be said by a Jesuit Priest from Whg.College . I will be able to be present.
Love and prayers,
Sister Mary Florence

Sorry for your loss. It is my hope that the family can find comfort through prayer to Jehovah, “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all of our trials. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.

I was blessed to know Maggie! I was fortunate to be able to spend time with her every several weeks as I did her hair and we chatted. I’ll never forget her great smile, her infectious laugh and her Big heart! I will miss her very much! ❤️

Every single time we’ve walked into WATCH, Maggie greeted us with a
smile & welcoming words; always so very kind & caring. She’s irreplacable & we will certainly miss her.
