My friend Margot Cusimano (second from the right) passed away last night, after a short battle with ALS. I will miss Margot so much, she was a curmudgeon, an outspoken red headed pacifist, a swearing liberal, a loyal friend and always fun and ready to go someplace and do something adventuresome.
I meet Margot at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Elgin in a program called “Cakes for the Queen of Heaven”. I was immediately taken with her frank speech and willingness to tackle difficult subjects. Over the years we became good friends and in the last twelve years we worked together on a yearly raffle quilt to benefit our church programs.
Good bye Margot.
