Dear Phyllis, I am so sorry her era ended. The only photo I had of her was the one I sent you a copy of. She looked so regal and strong. I want you to know that I share your sorrow for our mothers are truly our best friends in all the world. Love, Shirley Jean McKenzie Whalen

Dear Phyllis,My mom just told me about Nana. I am so sorry for your loss,but mom said to be happy for Nana has “gone home”. Mom’s are so special to all of us,my girls will miss Nana too. We liked to take her to lunch at the Red Lobster when we came to visit. Mom said they will be serving “she-crab” soup in Heaven today just for Nana.

Much love goes out to you today and every day. Karen Fizer

Thank you for this opportunity to send

my condolences. My memories of my Aunt Marguerite was when my parents stayed at her house in 1945 and when I visited her again in 1959. She was very sweet and hospitable. Sorry for your loss, Phyllis.
