I first met Margie a week or so ago at All Faiths Chapel located on the Grounds of the Illinois Veterans' Home where I am a Resident. My first impression of Margie was that of astonishment! One would never guess a thing was wrong with her to visually observe her demeanor, reserve, and total acceptance of what may or may not lay ahead of her. Margie emitted a ray of purity, acceptance, and strong will as she await Annointing for the Sick from Father Edgar. Margie had no qualms about what God had in store for her. She knew. I felt it!

She sat in her wheelchair posture straight. She was very, very proud, regardless of her fate. She cast forth and emitted a telepathic message that griipped my heart, She knew she was destined for a certain role, that this was her part: She would enter into the immemorial world of light and love; that her being and soul would be safe, and cherished
and that all of her pain was gone----leaving behind a legacy of which will live in infamy. Violet M. Connoyer
