Condolence & Memory Journal

To the family. I have prayed for you over and over again since that tragic Sunday evening. I was at the accident and gave my name and contact info to the sheriffs just in case anyone had any questions or needed to talk. As having lost my father on July 7 this year, I truly feel for you. I will continue to pray.

Sorry to hear about Margaret. (Barbara informed us of her passing). We met Margarett and Barbara on the Alaska trip they went on last year. She was a wonderful classy lady. So fun to be around. Glad we had the chance to met her. The Skinners and Rearicks

No one could be unaffected by her smile, brilliant as the sun, and the equal warmth of her personality. Margaret was the most caring person i've ever known and leaves a void impossible to fill. She had enough love for everyone and distributed it widely and freely. We will miss you sorely, my dear. May you have peace and happiness, reunited with George. You live on in our memories.

Sandra and David:

I am so sorry for your loss. There are no magical words in this time of sorrow. But know this...Margaret will not be forgotten. She was such a warm and kind hearted person - even the sound of her voice brought warmth.

May God bless you and yours,

Will certainly miss Margaret; always so friendly, and enjoyed playing bridge with her, too.

My heart hurts for the family to have to say goodbye to such a blessed lady.
