We always enjoyed our visits with Margaret. She was such an optimistic lady who gave us a lift each time we met. We will miss her much. Family, please accept our sympathy at this great loss.

My heart is broken. Margaret was the older sister I never had. She always had a quick reply to all of my teasing and loved the brownies I brought her and my mother, Loreece Shaw. I am so glad that she knows Jesus because I Know I will see her again. I bet she's already practicing for the race that she challenged me to when I get there. I pray for God's peace and strength for the family as they mourn in the time of their separation.
