I met Margarita through St.Theresa's Sunday night rosary. She would occasionally join our group and she was humble and so devout and just a precious lady! I know she was welcomed into heaven, she is surely missed!

ALWAYS, ALWAYS, doing for others. Where there was a need, it seemed she was always there. For several years I was privileged to celebrate communion services at the nursing home near Duval and Highway 183 now Windsor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Duval. She knew everyone, she knew their history and their needs. And for me, she was a guide on how to best serve each person individually. As a father and grandfather (now even great-grandfather), she knew I was always interested in what was happening to Jordan.

Our prayers for God's healing for the family as they celebrate her being with God.
