Dear Margaret,
So glad Charlotte Whaley and I got to sing "our" annually updated song for you to the tune of Honey Bun from South Pacific
"A hundred and six
Still picking up sticks
She's an inspiration to us all.
Well, her interests are so many
The list goes on and on.
Her causes are great
Her causes are small
But her friendship tops them all.
Margaret McDermott is her name
She's brought Dallas lasting fame
She's an inspiration to us all.
You better believe it!
She's an inspiration to us all.
No exaggeration!
She's an inspiration to us all!"
