Mrs Dixon was a wonderful lady. She was tough but that made us love her all the more. She was what all teachers should be and she will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her friends and family.

To the Dixon family, I am so sorry for your loss. Margaret was one of my many wonderful cousins. We were so blessed to have an amazing and loving family that made an effort to know and love each other. I will always remember the Kaylor Family Reunions and the Hearn Family Reunions. There were quite a few of us when we all got together. Margaret was a special part of our family and I know she will be missed by many. Please know that my heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Love, Sharon Kaylor Fugatt, Fort Myers, FL. *Daughter of Charles Talmage Kaylor and Sue D. Kaylor.
