I am a member of White Oak Missionary Baptist Church. I didn't know Ms. Margareta very well; however, I became very fond of her and embraced her as she began to visit our church. She was such a "classy" lady. I looked forward to seeing her join us on Sunday mornings. Her presence will certainly be missed. My prayers are with the family.
