  1. Sincere sympathies to Breege,Tommy,Macala,Rachel,Amy & Andrew and the extended Long and Casserly Families on the sad passing of Margaret.
    She was a remarkable lady and I had the privilege of looking after her in Merlin Park Hospital, most recently in Unit 5 and in Unit 6 a few years ago.
    The memories you have of her will get you through the dayx,weeks and months ahead.
    May her gentle soul rest in peace 🙏
