Mom, you were the beacon of light, the bond that held the family together and the most precious mom a son could ever have asked for. I love you and miss you so much. Thank you so much for the unconditional love you gave us all. I will miss you more than I can even put into words. I love you my sweet mama.

Oh my sweet Mom. I don't even know what to say. This is so incredibly sad. The world is missing a shining light. You brought comfort and love to so many people. Your smile beautiful and your laugh contagious. I love you more than you could ever know.

Alvie and Family,
We all will miss the loving, and happy presence of Margaret. Easy to laugh and so prepared to be a GRANDmother, taken far too soon. My brother is deeply wounded through this tragic loss. My prayer is for an outpouring of strength and comfort from our Father in heaven to Alvie and Family that can bring a peace that surpasses our understanding. What a blessing of joy she brought to Alvie through their life together. Love and blessings to Alvie and Family. Love, Dallas & Linda
