Dearest Martin Stephen Lowe [Nguyen Thien Bao],
We of the Quang Duc Buddhist Monastery wish to convey our
sincere commiserations on the event of your Mother’s passing.
We acknowledge that Mrs Margaret Elanie Morgan who was born in Birmingham, England on the 21s January 1921 and who passed away in Arcare nursing home, Wantirna, at 11pm, Thursday, 18th May 2017, aged 97 years, has contributed significantly to your families and will be sadly missed.We have known that Mrs Margaret is lovely mother of 3 children. She and her husband Mr Harold Morgan (1927-2006) brought their children to Australia in 1963. Both of them work hard to look after their children. Mrs Margaret is a kind and wise lady, with a sense of humour. Life was not always easy for her, but she kept strong for her family. In the year of 2011, she was 90 years old. She marked that important point of her life by making a vow to become a Buddhist disciple and Master Tam Phuong gave her the Buddhist name ‘Thien An Hoa’, meaning that Good Deed and Harmony Life. She was very happy to have that beautiful religious name.
On behalf of Quang Duc Monastery, we want to share your families' sorrow and wish to convey our support and sympathy during this sad time your family: brothers; Robert Edward Lowe (and wife Patricia), Christopher John Lowe, especially to you, Martin Stephen Lowe [Buddhist name: Nguyen Thien Bao], your wife Bach Tuyet Lowe [Nguyen Thien Hanh], all of the children, and also to your parent’s very special friend Harold Barkley.The grief you are experiencing is hard to bear at any time, but please remember that we are with you, and anxious to help lighten your load.May your beloved Mother be reborn in the peaceful realm soon, may you be filled with faith and hope, even in the midst of inescapable grief. This is the prayer of your masters and friends.
You are in our thoughts and prayers,
