    To all Marguerite’s Family and extended family at SunPointe, my sincere condolences as a life lived, long and full has come to an end. I have memories of visiting your Benvoulin Rd home and playing chase, albeit carefully, around the quilting table as our MOm’s talked over coffee. Marguerite was a good nursing buddy and colleague of my Mom’s. I’m sure she has told many humourous stories of nursing in the good old days. Sincerely, (from Maui) Deb Spall
