    I was so sorry not to get to Melbourne last year as planned to visit you all with my young people. The world and international connection is so different from what we had come to assume & rely on, and yet time and life moves on.

    Marg made me feel like I had a home in Melbourne. I miss and love you all.

    Love Jane, Ester & Silver xxx

    What a gorgeous relationship you have had for sixty years filled with adventure, creativity and love.
    I wish to thank you both for bringing such beautiful children into the world as they have enriched our lives so much along with your fabulous grand children.
    I have fond memories of you both stopping in for a wine on your early evening stroll around North Fitzroy. The photos are so special. Viji, you and Margaret were total babes in your youth! You are still cute of course.

    It was wonderful to learn and be reminded of so many aspects of Margaret’s life. She was always warm, generous and feisty in those Monash days. Nearly 50 years later, I can appreciate even more her courage in marrying Viji, and providing the light in his life.

  36. My deepest condolences to Maha and the Krisnipillai family, and warm hugs and thoughts for your father at this time.

    Margaret was one of the greatest people on the planet and I felt truly honoured when she let a gauche, dyed red hair, faux student punk stay in your family home for a few nights in our first year of university. I remain indebted to your family’s deep generosity and compassion – although the family curries that she enjoyed did have a stronger kick than I’d imagined.

    Even better was the opportunity to see her again many years later, and sit and talk with her and your father and realize what amazing folks you had; – real, smart, pragmatic, and caring! Qualities they have passed on to their children and I have always admire!

    Bless her and all the great memories she has placed in each of your hearts.

    With abiding respect.

  37. We will miss Marg so much but the memories will always be there of the laughter and fun we always shared
    Goodbye our dear friend

  38. Many fond memories of the houseboat trips and Renmark holidays. A strong, happy, generous woman. A great friend to mum you were Aunty Marg. Much love to the family.x
