Aunt Margaret was always kind and caring to us! She always remembered our birthday and sent a card. I have many fond memories of her at Oliver Lake, and their homes in Fort Wayne. My dad, Albert, appreciated her kindness and conversations. Rest In Peace Auntie! May God bless Jim, Greg, Tom, and their families.
