To the family of Margaret…. No words can adequately describe how wonderful your mother was. She was the kindest woman We have ever met. We moved into the neighborhood 12 years ago and she came over to introduce herself. We fell in love with her that first encounter. She always had a smile on her face, a friendly neighborly wave, and good conversation. She will be missed beyond words. God Bless you all.

Gwen Holmes - Nov 12, 2013

Carmen, Cam, and Connie. Just want to let you know how much your Mother meant to me. She was an awesome lady and a lot more than a sister-in-law. She was a great friend. I cherish my time with her and the wonderful memories I’ll carry with me.
Love you all so much.
