|Let the memory of Marguerite be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Marguerite Forrester, 100, born on January 19, 1914 and passed away on April 15, 2014. We will remember her forever.
"Happy Birthday Gram..I love you...you will be in my heart forever.....you...were the one person who was my friend...we will always..be best friends...."
"Yesterday was a full moon....I thought about you...you left us last year during the 'Blood Moon'...you and I always talked about the full moon, we kept track of it...the full moon will always remind me of you."
"When somebody dies, a cloud turns into
an angel, and flies up to tell God
to put another flower on a pillow.
A bird gives the message back to
the world, and sings a silent prayer
that makes the rain cry. People dis-
appear, but they never really go away.
The spirits up there put the sun to
bed, wake up grass, and spin the
earth in dizzy circles. Sometimes you
can see them dancing in a cloud during
the day-time, when they're supposed
to be sleeping. They paint the rain-
bows and also the sunsets and make
waves splash and tug at the tide.
They toss shooting stars and listen to
wishes. And when they sing wind-
songs, they whisper to us, don't
miss me too much. The view is nice
and I'm doing just fine."
"I am honored to say a few words about my grandmother…to say what a remarkable, beautiful, inspirational, special person she was to so many...
Today....it is one year since you left us...tonight will be one year ago, since I held your hand for two days, and let it go for the final time, when you left us....
We are celebrating your life and the beautiful precious memories that you gave us
Your spirit lives on.....you are so sorely missed by us. Marianne has put out beautiful tulips for you, which she knows you enjoy... I think about you every single day...."
"My Peggy, Always remembered, never to be forgotten with fond memories of years passed. Times shared in conversation sitting at your kitchen table talking about everything, laughing, gifts of time. Even at your tender age of 100 yrs you talked to me with wisdom about life and love! I look over at your property and see you busy enjoying every moment caring for your property, garden, leaving your fingerprints on every inch inside and out. I know you are still looking over at my house from your bedroom at night and see my light on! Thank you for your friendship, strenght and wisdom.. You will be forever missed. You left us too soon without saying goodbye. I know you are with your dear Earl smiling on all of us that love you! God Bless you dear heart."
"When Miss Peggy turned 100 on January 19, 2014, we all wanted to know her "recipe" for being in such great shape !! Italian cooking..milk...gardening ...being active ...and intellectually curious!
HAPPY 101st. BIRTHDAY !!!!"
"My grandmother’s birthday is January 19, 2015. Every year we celebrated her birthday together including her 100th birthday, which she celebrated last year and in good health. I wanted to pay a tribute to her to acknowledge her for the wonderful, wise, beautiful person she was and to thank her for the gift she gave me of knowing her, of being able to spend time together, and for being a part of my life…she will be in my heart, in our hearts, forever.
My grandmother was the one person who had a permanent presence in my life. She was barely five feet tall, lived alone, enjoyed good health, still cooked her own meals, baked homemade bread, italian pizza, and many other scrumptious dishes for folks to enjoy when they came for a visit. She was a well built woman with a very strong presence. She enjoyed good health, gardening and the outdoors. She was a wise woman and always willing to share her wisdoms with anyone who asked.
It was difficult to watch someone try to break your spirit…and finally succeed.
Greed is such an ugly sin. I know you are in a better place, and you are finally at peace.
We will miss you for your 101st birthday on January 19, 2015. We love you Gram, Peggy, Marguerite, Aunt Margaret, you were so many things to so many people and you are so dearly missed. Happy Birthday we will always have you in our hearts…until we meet again. We love you Gram."
"I heard that your garden is blooming with beautiful flowers and that a deer stopped by your patio to say hello to you.....I miss you...."
"Happy Memorial Day, Gram! I will miss seeing you this year."
"This flower in memory of "Miss Peggy" , my longtime neighbor and friend, symbolizes her all-time favorite plant ..the tomato! It kept her healthy and happy and busy well into her 100s !"
"To my dear grandmother who was so much a part of my daily life, and my best friend, I miss her dearly but know she is with us every day and in a much better place looking down on us. Happy Mother's Day, Gram, I love you."
