  4. Margaret I have known (about) for most of my life, but we have seen her only a couple of days in all those years.
    Therefore we were happy to meet her last year again and see what your life looked like and all the things Jan made and build.
    Even though it was in such a difficult period Margaret was in very good spirits.
    From what we have seen and what we heard across the ocean we know that she was a wonderful mom and will be sadly missed.
    As it usually goes, in the coming time lots of things and places you shared will remind you and bring her back into your mind to remember the good times you had with her.
