    Margaret and I were friends for 50 years. We met at the post office.
    We talked on the phone every Saturday. She was a good friends. A caring and loving person. God sent the angels to escort her to His place. The world is sad that but she completed her job on this side.

    She will be missed.

    Alaina, Maurice, and Family,

    You Are All In Our Prayers.

    Margaret was a Co-Worker at the Postal Service and because of our respective unit’s locations I would see her almost daily. She always had a smile and a greeting. When she Retired I didn’t see her again but then I met Alaina and Maurice and through the magic of Line Dancing and I could keep in touch with her that way.

    I know she will be missed but the memories are everlasting.

    To the family of Margaret,
    Your mother was a wonderful, kind, energetic, happy, lovely woman whom I had a great fondness for. I just thought of her this past Sunday at mass, and thought I should call her this week. I’m so very sorry to hear of Margaret’s passing. She will be greatly missed by the parish that she loved. We had many conversations on Saturdays after I set up for mass, and she arrived early and sat in the second row. I loved seeing her every Wednesday at daily mass, until she was no longer able to attend. I would always say “it’s good to see you,” to which she would reply, “it’s good to be seen!” I will always remember her warm laugh and kind words. I am blessed for having known her. You are in our prayers!
