Margaret was the sweetest lady you could ever meet! She and Ken and I had some great times at brunch and that last dinner where we practically laughed out heads off. I will miss her contagious smile and cheerful heart, not to mention those incredible sweet potato pies.
Our hearts grieve, but I know she is now resting comfortably, nestled in the arms of the Lord.
