Dear Gaffney family, my deepest sympathies to you all. Margaret will be so, so missed. She was one of the kindest people I’ve ever known. She brightened up everyone’s day. I have lovely memories of her in our kitchen in Glendale Meadows, great chats and lots of giggles. She really cared for people and always spoke about her family. She was so proud of you all. She adored our dogs and would chat away kindly to them. Margaret was truly a special person. I remember her telling me much she loved going home to Donegal. She’s going home today, her final journey. May her beautiful soul rest in peace. I’m thinking of Margaret and all of you today. Mind each other. X
