    I love Nanny, Baba very much. But just wanted to say that she passed November 3rd and not October 3. She was one of the most amazing strong willed women in my life. I was truly blessed to be apart of her life. She always saw the good in others and was constantly positive. I only wish that I can model my life to be more like hers.

    Nanny, was an amazing grandmother, that was a second mother to all of her grand-kids. She will be missed dearly. I am sad to see her pass, but happy to know that she has been reunited in heaven with her daughter, Mary Hall .

    You were truly blessed by God. Over the years, as I brought my sons to church, I noticed, and was deeply touched, by the love you and Margaret had for each other. I used to watch the two of you go to communion together. I can’t say I was jealous, because my marriage was not so blessed, I was just touched and happy to see couples like you, Francis and Peggy, Deacon Joe and Josephine. I’m sure you inspired many young couples in our parish to stick it out through the ups and downs.
    As I am physically limited, I will not be at the viewing or the mass but I will pay tribute to Margaret, to the best of my ability and with the help of the Holy Spirit, through the booklet I am just starting to prepare.
    God bless you and your family.

    We moved next door to Jack and Margaret in 1984. They were awesome neighbors and friends. Margaret was a very calm, easy going, beautiful lady. She has been ill for quite a while and we miss both Jack and her.
    She is surely in heaven taking a walk around the block as she did on earth. God Bless her and the family.

    We are heartbroken to know that Marge is no longer with us, however, we’ll never forget what a wonderful sister and sister-in-law she was. She is with the Lord now, and that makes us happy. Jack, you have been really great standing by Marge’s side and nursing her for a long time along with John & Debi’s help. God Bless All Of You! Ann & Bob
