Margaret Somerville was a remarkable lady who I was blessed to have in my life as a friend, teacher and mentor. Both Daphne Read and I attended her memorial service at the Rockdale Uniting Church with her family and friends. Margarets brother Stuart spoke about his childhood memories as part of the eulogy. It was very clear that Margaret was a warm generous person since childhood. Margaret left this poem in her room with a note to her brother to read it out at her funeral. Look for me in Rainbows Time for me to go now, I wont say goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky. In the morning sunrise when all the world is new, Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you. Time for me to leave you, I wont say goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky. In the evening sunset, when all the world is through, Just look for me and love me, and Ill be close to you. Time for us to part now, we wont say goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky. Every waking moment, and all your whole life through, Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you. Margarets legacy lives on in the day to day work at Somerville and importantly in the respectful manner in which we apply ourselves to our work and remain committed to our Mission. Thank you Margaret for the gift of Somerville. Vicki OHalloran AM Chief Executive Officer Comment By Vicki OHalloran Whats inside ?
