Condolences

Condolence From: marilyn shanks
Condolence: We met Margaret with her husband Charles at Norton Hospital they both were there to comfort and be by side of their daughter Karen De Spain while she was going through major neck surgery. Karen had falling a sleep and Margaret ask me & my better half Trent if we like to go down stair to the cafeteria and grab a bite to eat. What a lovely lunch we had with kindest couple Mr. & Mrs De Spain, they both ask us to call them by their first names. This is a lunch that will stick in our minds and treasure in our hearts forever. We always wanted to go out to visit with Margaret and Charles to talk with them again we enjoyed so much just that one day& lunch however it never happen with our lives full and Karen always intended to take us out to see them to show us their beautiful new home and for us to repay their kindness and bring them dinner on us however something always came up. We were by their home one evening all of us had went out to dinner and we would loved to have stop by , Karen said they were to ill out of concern for them we didn't. To all the family we are deeply sorry for loss of your mother, no one can replace this( Hero) a child best friend even when were totally grown we need our mothers love. Even though we only talk and met Margaret once, her light shined with care and love for others, we all talk for around hour but time flew both of them were a delight to be around. We all order chili the company of that day made hospital food taste awesome. Margaret and Charles insisted on paying for our meal. By reading Margaret obituary there no doubt (Margaret) without a doubt a( mother& grandmother)was the glue that held the families together. We will pray all of the family finds a way to continue the loving traditions this wonderful( mother& grandmother) put so much love into for her family and friends. Karen been our friend / like sister to me for very long time. Margaret passing broke her heart, she the only child of Margaret we ever met. Karen is step daughter however Karen always view Margaret as her second Mother. They shared a special kind of bond. Love hurts when we lose a loved one who been part of our lives for so long its hard to learn to live without them. A mother is ultimate loss. Just by meeting and talking with Margaret, we could tell she knew her children &step Children would be strong and keep her memories alive. Our hearts go out to Mr.Charles De Spain. Our prayers will go up for him, losing a spouse is heartbreaking. Its good this gentle man has a loving family who will look out for Charles. Margaret went in peace we are sure knowing her husband will be care and loved, look after by loving hands. Death can break a family or bring it closer there no doubt Margaret would want all her loved ones to remain family forever, she be waiting to reunited with her beloved Spouse Mr. Charles De Spain one day. May all of you be bless and help each other cope with such major loss, that what family do look out for all family members at their time of need there know greater time to love your siblings,all of them regards of word step, that does not matter that just a word behind that all siblings on both side know means (deep love for each other). Margaret will be missed by so many, even by a couple (us) who only had the pleasure of spending one whole day with Margaret and Charles so the pain the family is feeling in comparison so much bigger than the saddest we feel for loss of such a wonderful person. Margaret was a awesome , classy lady who showed know difference at Christmas towards her real children and her step children to her she felt no (none) she loved all her family equally that what she express to us and we admired her for it. Margaret wasn't a wicked step mother on the contrary Margaret was a cool caring mother wonderful human being, who loved all her children and wanted them all to have a great lives. Margaret told us Her and Charles bought Christmas gifts and put numbers on each of them and each person or couple drew their numbers were there would never be anyone feeling hurt they drew luck of number that was their gift. When she told this story to us that seen like a wonderful thing to do. Margaret said the grandchildren were given money this lady was organized in a great way such love to all no one left out. Rest in peace beautiful spirit (Mrs Margaret De Spain) with the Angels, you will definitely fit right in those guarding skies watching over your loved ones here one earth with your flowing white angels wings. Fly high lovely lady. With sincere condolence and our deepest sympathies, sending healing prayers comforting hugs to all family members and friends of the Mrs. Margaret De Spain family.
Thanks for the wonderful memory of having lunch with us, when ever we make Chili our minds will go back in time when all of us had a bowl of Chili (with a our special buddies) now ones a your angel (Margaret) but you always were.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all and we wish all of you love and peace, were sincerely sorry for your loss. Trent Mills & Marilyn Shanks
