Years ago, when not long after I first started playing in Paint Shop Pro graphics communities online, I met a wonderful Scottish lady who had married a Brit and left her dear Scotland behind. They had a beautiful daughter and a good looking son-in-law who, in time, gave them two handsome grandsons.
She and I developed an online friendship with learning Paint Shop Pro as our common interest. However, she shared personal stories and photos of her family and I shared mine with her as well.
We were separated by miles of land and ocean, but had many things in common. We loved to have a good laugh and enjoyed meeting others just like us in more than one graphics forum. However, Margaret spent the last decade and a little more as a coordinator at PlusPSP.com. While I have played at the site off and on as my creativity allowed, she has been steadfast, helpful and fun to interact with to old members and new and enjoyed great relationships with many at PlusPSP.
Last June, our dear Topsy, as she was known to most online, was diagnosed with esophogeal cancer. Today, she succumbed to the dreaded disease and I am sad along with her many other friends and family.
I will forever miss her emails, hearing about her precious grandsons’ achievements and their many weekends and holidays spent with her and her loving husband.
She was a dear person, a faithful friend and one who had a wonderful wit about her.
We may not have met here in person on this Earth, but I do hope to meet her face-to-face someday.
Love you, Margaret, mean it.
