  12. I am happy and yet so sad to know that the lady that I regarded as my second momma is not going to be just down the road anymore. The Shain Family has experienced a great loss of a fine lady that taught us to love Jesus and our Catholic Faith. Nevertheless, we know that she is dancing in the heavens with the angels now and is no longer in pain and discomfort. We will always remember the love that you taught us and will instill such love in our heart and souls as we think of what a blessing you were in our lives.

    Heather and David Shain
  13. Just today I learned of Margaret’s passing. My condolences to her loved ones! I served on ACTS retreats with Margaret and loved her daily letters to God. She inspired me and I will always remember her spirit, kindness, and laughter. Margaret, as you are watching over us right now, tell God hello.

    To Margaret’s family… I would love to read all of Margaret’s letters one day, but recognize they are precious to you. But if you ever decide to publish them, put me down for 10 copies of the book!
