Sly man and family. How can anyone get over such a big loss? Mags was a friend, an advisor to a really raw, new teacher/coach at UU, and I know a wonderful, funny human being. She had so many battles that she faced with courage and humor. The only thing that keeps me hopeful, is that God needed her. Words truly escape me. Please know you all are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you all can find peace. Cindy Cavanaugh
