"Dear Margaret, peace be with. We never meet - but heard a lot about you through your Son Tony. Daisy, RE and Ramon are praying that God will continue to bless you as he put you in the arms of his Blessed Mother, who will hold close to her, with much love, as a mother would do with a new born and bring you safely home.

This tribute was added by Tony Hayward on 7th May 2015

"Mom, thank you for being our mother, giving us life was just the beginning of all the sacrifices you would make for me and Buddy.  Thank you for always being proud of us and everything we did and who we have become today.  And who we have become today. We are the men we are today because of the lifetime, effort, sacrifice, love and devotion you gave to us. Thank you for never, never telling us no.  I believe a child can never pay their parents back for what they have done for that. I only hope when it is all said and done that someday I too will be compared to my mom and dad as he was just like them.
Mom, thanks for the memories, I love you very much!"
