She was a special lady and I will miss seeing her this summer. I always looked forward to our visits. I’ll never forgot our visit last summer. She fell I tried to catch her and we ended up both on the floor laughing. We decided to just stay there on the floor for our visit.

To Sue, Tim and Katie;
I got to know Margaret when Kimmy was a patient at Sparrow (I was the unit coordinator at the time). I will never forget your family because I was there when Kimmy was diagnosed and I was there when
she left us. Margaret and I got to know each other and had some great conversations. She was such a special lady. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

We have been praying for you since we received the word about your mom. Our prayers are for the strength you will need to get through these next few days. We know your mom is in a better place, but your hearts are still empty and broken. Many days we have wondered how you have made it through, but YOU have and YOU will with God’s Blessings.
We love you all.
