Marguerite Da Costa
By Sharon Schmidt
My best friend and roommate of over 25 years. “Twins by different mothers”. Marguerite was a sweet, generous, creative, and wonderful person who lived just a short 60 years. We met working retail, neither of us married so we moved in together. We were ‘partners in crime’, especially on weekends when we weren’t working – we’d explore the city, we’d seek out new places, we’d go for High Tea, we’d travel together, shop together, we’d be each other’s sounding boards, I could go on and on. Marguerite passed away in Langley Hospital’s CCU on March 30, 2016 and she is out of pain and reunited with her beloved niece and mother. I know she is waiting patiently for me, with our dogs, at “the Rainbow Bridge”. May she rest in peace in the knowledge that she was loved by many and will be forever missed by many, especially by me – her best friend forever.
