Margaret will be missed by many. I will miss the good times we had. She loved the poems I wrote and enjoyed the pictures of the grandkids. She had a beautiful smile and an even more beautiful heart. May she rest in peace.

I loved her and will have an empty spot that was always filled with a smile when she was around. She has no idea how much she helped me through some rough times by simply being the loving person she was. I am so happy I was able to spend some time with her recently. Jack, you took such good care of her. God bless you and God Bless Margaret. I will miss her. But she is in the arms of the Lord and still has that smile I'm sure.

Jack, I am so sorry for your loss. Margaret had a special place in my heart. I loved her as if she were my own family. I always looked forward to seeing her and always enjoyed our conversations. She will be greatly missed. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and if you need me for anything at all - just get ahold of me. Be glad to help out anyway that I can.
