To all who knew Marguerite,
My apologies for not getting back to you sooner. There have been many details to work through and we wanted to be sure to honor her properly. From the time of my grandfather’s retirement up until our gathered Thanksgiving last year, Forest Hills has been a solid, comforting presence in all of our lives. I am sure you have written many memorials for the website and she would be pleased with your kind words on her behalf. I hope the picture I attached will work for you.
I wanted to give you the final details of my grandmother’s memorial. It will be held on Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 11:00 am. The location is Mary’s Chapel at Spanish Point in Osprey, FL. We are asking that those wishing to attend should arrive before 10:30 as some walking is involved to get to the chapel. There will be a luncheon provided on the grounds afterward but we are asking if you are intending to stay for the luncheon, please RSVP by October 17th, as we need to give a final count to the caterer. Thank you for passing along this information and thank you for honoring her memory. God bless you all!
Marguerite’s family reached out to us as she faced her final days last month, and wanted us to know how much she was uplifted by the cards and letters that were sent by many of you. Her family expressed their gratefulness for the outpouring of love, and wanted us to be reminded of her love for Forest Hills UMC and her church family.
Our dear friend, Marguerite, went home to the Father on August 21, 2014. Marguerite had been a member of Forest Hills UMC for over forty years. She attended faithfully and was a generous supporter. We shall miss her beautiful smile!
