    To everyone feeling Marg’s loss today, please accept our deepest condolences. Mum and Marg were so close and I hope they’re now re-united, having a laugh together again. I’m sorry our current circumstances prevented me from coming up to Brisbane to be with you all but I was very glad for the live-stream.

    All best wishes, Adrian McEniery, with Anne, Michael and Matthew.

    Margaret was a wonderful woman, always giving and and kind. She inspired one to try to be like her and to be better. Her kindness was extended to all.

    I remember that, once, in Rome, when there was a taxi strike, Margaret, who had driven a Sister to the Airport, saw a woman with a suitcase standing on the footpath looking forlorn and lost. Margaret, being Margaret, offered help and, without fear or hesitation, drove a stranger across Rome to her home.

    She will continue to be treasured by all who knew her.

    Margaret always had a wonderful smile on her face during family catch ups.
    She looked on the bright side, took an interest in what was happening in peoples lives and was a great friend of Mum. They’re probably snap-chatting each other on their favorite “gadget”.

    Margaret was good news.

    My image of Margaret is her beautiful smile!
    She was full of life, a joyful spirit and had great energy.
    I first met Margaret in Peru when she was on the General Council.
    She was a good listener and showed a strong compassion for the poor.
    She again visited us in Bolivia and traveled with us to many parts, and was very enthusiastic about our missions.
    It was hard to image how physically weak she became.
    It was her inner strength of faith, and determination to fight her disease that inspires us.
    Margaret is a wonderful example to us of fortitude and perseverance.
    My sincerest prayers for Margaret’s family and our sisters in Australia.
    Margaret may you rest in peace.

    Rest in God’s embrace and peace, Margaret. I remember you with deep gratitude for the times we met in Rome and in Belfast. You enriched my life and the lives of so many. Condolences to your family and the Franciscan Community.

    This Liturgy was a beautiful tribute to Margaret and wonderful for me to see all our sisters there. I was very touched by Marg’s brother Ed’s words, especially his description of her finger tapping, rapid fire message at the hospital. I experienced the very same thing in Rome during the first Gullain Barre episode when I was trying to figure out some method of communication . Alerted to what I expected to be a profound message, I frantically tried to remember each letter as she tapped out, ‘Where are my watch and ring??? Always a concrete, practical lady even in an intensive care ward with no outside windows and not clock! Marg and I had several Roman and especially Egyptian experiences together and she always exhibited a “Live fully until you die attitude.” Thank you, Marg, for that vibrancy and smile, you were a joy to live with.
