It has been a true joy taking care of her. She made my job so easy and enjoyable. She gave me a lot of advice that I will hold near and dear to my heart. Thank you for allowing me to care for her.

Margaret was a dear friend for many years. We have shared so many hours together talking and sharing our lives. In fact, my plan was to call her on the day she passed. She was such a brave survivor of a long illness and never was there a complaining moment. Her positive outlook was a pleasure to be around and she was always doing for others. Margaret lived her faith and never gave up despite her illness. In the days ahead, we will all miss her very much. We will keep all of you in our prayers in the days ahead. Love,
