Margaret’s Love

Margaret was one of those rare people who loved with an unbounded heart, loving people with an intensity that was only matched by her fidelity in relationship. This fidelity provided so many people a refuge in a world that often struggles to love.

I have only ever received one marriage proposal in my life and that was from Margaret! Most importantly, though, she was my friend, and I am proud to say I was hers. But I know that I am not unique. Over the ten years of my journey with Margaret, I watched her love so many assistants who came to her home in Burwood. She loved each of them into life, over and over again. After their time with us, they left as people with bigger hearts, missioned as it were by Margaret to share the love they had received from her.
