....A Tribute To Margaret (MargaretJ).....

............ 29-06-1940 - 19-11-2015............

Margaret was diagnosed in 2009,

Another member here online.

Six years of battling this disease,

It seems to take whom it may please.

Margaret fought with all her might,

Now sadly lost her internal fight.

She was not one for flowery words,

Would probably think this tribute absurd.

But Margaret was a valued member,

With these words we will remember.

We say goodbye to another friend,

So very brave right to the end.

With courage and strength as you know,

We can hear her say "It's time to go".

As Margaret John takes a bow,

Our thoughts are with her family now.

  • I knew Margaret wasn't well of late but didn't expect to hear this news. She was a very strong, brave and independent woman and I don't think this disease took any of those things from her. If anything, it highlighted them.
