I loved Margaret as I took care of her at the Cloisters. She always made me laugh. We had a very nice relationship which I will forever remember. We had this thing when I got her ready for bed I always itched her back and put lotion to help her. She would say can I stay and itch her back and I would just laugh. She had a lovely personality . I will always remember Margaret and am very sorry for your loss.
