So sorry to hear of Margarets passing. We have many fond memories of her and her delightful sense of humour. What a wonderful woman of God, and a great prayer warrior, she will be greatly missed. Sorry we are unable to attend the celebration of her life as we are in the South Island at present, our love and prayers are with you all.

Peace and blessings,
Paul and Carol Pritchard.

Memories of being friends since16yrs old in Stratford then in New Plymouth!
Always being able to take on where we left off despite where our lives took us.
FB brought us together again & we had many chats between Gold Coast & NP, in latter years. I saw her last in August so have known she was not well!
My heartfelt sympathy & prayers to Karl & the family, she will be greatly missed by all who knew & loved her!!
