Hearing the passing of my dear and beautiful friend was a shock to me. Ms. Meg as we referred to her was a sweet caring and loving woman. She was my adopted Emory mother. We immediately connected because we had a common background----Africa. She shared a lot of her African experience with me because she was the daughter of hard working missionaries. Of such was how her parents painstakingly helped to translate the Holy Bible into the language of the tribe her parents ministered to. Her experiences were very encouraging and inspiring. As a loving mother she shared beautiful stories of her sons daughters(in-law)and grandchildren. She mentioned all of them by name.WalterCharles Bradley and Robert and family please latch on the grace mercy and peace that God has provided for such a time as this. It is well. My other adopted sister was the one who broke the news to me. We knew about it after the fact and the goodbyes have been said and done. It sent a jolt of guilt because I have been wanting to pay her a visit at a comfortable time for her but it never happened. I am thankful for the phone conversations we held together. While at Emory we had a lot of fun and Ms. Meg pampered us with generosity. Always bearing surprise gifts loaded with motherly advice on parenting and life. Her sense of humor was unique and we teared up a lot laughing. She was a gem to know. There is something Ms. Meg and myself say when we end our conversations. It is an African word she taught me which means Thank You. Even though I have said it to her many times I will say it to her a final time. Twasakadila my friend and mother and rest on at the bosom of our Lord and Savior Jesus till we meet againbr rn

Bob Cousar and I Sue Ann will miss Meg and her wonderful laugh. So sorry we wont be at the service tomorrow but we are thinking of you boys Walter Charles Brad and Robert and your families. We will all miss Meg but rest in the fact we will see her on the other side. She was one of the stars shining in the Cousar family that I married into. Because we traveled back to Atlanta less and less it meant we didnt get to see her as often especially at worship at Westminster. Blessings on all the family.

Our sincere condolences to Megs Family. We lived across the street from Meg for 6 years and enjoyed what a lady and great neighbor she was. She will be missed but our Lord is taking care of her now.

My deepest condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. While nothing will completely take away your grief by meditating on Gods promises found in the Bible you can find real hope and the strength to keep going. My family and I have found the scripture at Isaiah 258 to be especially comforting. Here it promises that God will swallow up death forever and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.

Meg was the definition of the Godly Woman Solomon wrote of in Proverbs 3130. I especially think of Meg when it speaks of her being filled with kindness. As my neighbor we shared sweet moments together. I loved Meg and know the love was reciprocated.

My sincere condolences to the Tooke (Cousar) Beach rnbr rnMeg was a wonderful member of the South Carolina Club of Atlanta. She spoke at one of the last meetings she was able to attend. Her topic was Growing Up as a Child of Missionaries in Africa. Our group was enthralled by the stories she shared and had planned to have her talk again about the crocodiles and snakes. She will be greatly missed by her South Carolina friends.
