My deepest sympathies to Mr Gough Whitlam, his children, grandchildren and all his family. On many occasions I have had the pleasure of Mr and Mrs Whitlam and sons, as guests, at various hospitality establishments over the years. On a each occasion Margaret and Gough engaged warmly, talked at length with no pretence and at times made you feel as though they were serving you not the other way around. As a Nation we have lost an incredible women and Australian! Although we all share grief at this time my heart is with Margaret's husband, soul mate and partner of 70 years, Gough. With my Respect and Love Peter
Words can never express what we think and feel, and are often not a consolation to the family. I do hope however they draw strenght from out comments, knowing that we will mis her too. RIP Margaret
A very special woman, who not only spoke her mind but also acted accordingly. Have always respected her a lot. Can only imaginethe family must be gutted by her loss. My thoughts are with the family.
A remarkable person; mother, wife, activist. Shee will be sorely missed. My thoughts and sympathy are with the family. May she rest in peace.
