Mrs. Margret was a very special lady. I was with arkridge for a short time but during that time I made a special friend in her. She loved to talk about her kids especially Johnny Sue ❤️. My prayers are with the family.

To Johnnie Sue and her brothers: Your mother was a very special lady who ran the good fight. She was a joy to so many people and an inspiration to all her knew her. I have such lovely memories of her and your dad (Milton). They would entertain all the "MSers" with a picnic in the summer at their house.
She and Milton would participate in all MS activities and never fail to support others fighting this terrible disease,
I so wish I could be there today to support you all, but a family emergency prohibits me from being with you, but my love and admirarion are with you.
Sincererely, Sally Reeve (formerly Exec. Director of National M.S. Society local chapter)

I remember Aunt Margaret and Uncle Milton playing cards with my momma and daddy (Mary Alice & Kenneth Hash) at their house. Aunt Margaret was always a very sweet lady and I know y'all will miss her so very much! I'm so very sorry for y'alls loss.
