To Roger, Marcia and Gary - Your mother (my Aunt Margaret) was a good friend to my mother, Eva. I have fond memories of her from my childhood, and in recent years, she wrote me letters every Christmas about your family.  May her memory ever be a blessing to you.

To all family, it was a pleasure getting to know Margaret over the last year. We were able to share some good memories of her growing up where mom lives now. I deeply enjoyed our time together. My deepest sympathies to all family members. She will be missed.
