Dear Beryl and Elva,

What a surprise to learn of Margorie's passing, and especially hearing the news from PEI. My sister Joy saw the announcement on Facebook! No doubt the absence of the Strouts at this time accounts for the fact that I hadn't heard...

But, what joyful surprise must have been hers as she entered the Lord's presence! It is hard to imagine! Seeing God!! Seeing Jesus face to face! And also no doubt seeing people she ministered the Gospel to during her life!!

But for you there will be a big empty space in your hearts and I want to express my sincere sympathies. May the Lord's special presence be of comfort to you at this time.

Love in Christ, Marj Robbins

Beryl Beckwith and Elva Beckwith

Thinking of you at this time of your loss of Marjorie and her promotion to glory. I remember as a young boy with my family visiting your home in Sherbrooke, as we travelled in from Drummondville to attend services at Grace Chapel. I've enjoyed receiving detailed letters of the work overseas from Marjorie and also Doris Pittman and sensed the love for the work of the Lord there. Marjorie is now home, with old age and frailness behind, and I can only imagine the joy she is experiencing. You are in our prayers at this time asking for the Lord's peace and comfort, but knowing the future is bright.
With our love,
Peter and Mary Jean Howitt, Halifax
