George, I am so sorry for your loss.  Margie was such a great mom, wife and I'm sure Grandma.  I just heard today.  Love to all of you.

George, Donna, Brian, & families;
I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Margaret.  I remember watching her work around the yard when I was growing up next door.  She always had a smile on her face.  She would always listen to our sales pitches when we were doing a school or sports fundraiser.  Walking home from the bus stop, if she was outside, she would always wave and ask about our day at school.  She will be greatly missed.  Love and prayers for you during this time.
