My heartfelt condolences to the family of Margaret. She was a dear, sweet lady that I will always have fond memories of. We wrote to each other for many years through e-mail. I loved receiving mail from her telling me all about her family and life growing up. She had beautiful stories to tell. So very interesting ! I would then tell her about my family and she always had a caring heart. I will miss those letters !! She is a beautiful “angel” in heaven now beside her husband Lester. May you “Rest In Peace” my wonderful friend. GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS

When I was a baby Margaret came to live with our family when she was 13 years old. She use to change my diapers. As I grew older she told me that I was a good boy and well behaved. We stayed in contact throughout our lives until the day she passed away. Every year she would send me a card on my birthday. She never forgot. That’s the kind of person she was. I will miss her kindness and thoughtfulness. May she “Rest In Peace”.
