Deepest Sympathy to the family on the loss of your dear loved one. Margaret attended St. John's Methodist Church with me when she was able and she was in my Circle Group. Margaret was a lovely person and I will miss her. Her dedication to her Church and her Family was admirable and I always enjoyed our visits at Generations of Batesburg. She was an inspiration to me as well as others around her. May God Bless you.
