Thank you for teaching me what the meaning of being a well rounded, hard headed, smart minded women means. :)
Thank you for bringing my beautiful mother onto this earth and instilling in her all that you are.
Not only did I have the pleasure of loving and knowing you, I see it everyday through her and each person you have touched. I will always remember the unmatched wittiness, your quirkiness and intelligence. You will forever be in my heart and soul. Until we meet again Nana Banana.
I love you.

Aunt Margaret, you are truly going to be missed by all of us. We didn’t see each other as much as I wish we had but when we did, I always felt your warmth and love. All you had to do was smile and give me one of your hugs and I felt just like I did as a kid. I have so many memories of you as a kid growing up and even as an adult. I remember calling you when I was early 20s and told you I was getting ready for work and I had a rash all over. Your advice was to take a warm bath and call you. So I did and you told me I had chicken pox. And, I did ! Another time I called you crying cuz I wanted to make Cooney biscuits and gravy but my gravy wouldn’t turn out. You told me over the phone how to do it and to this day, turns out every time. You were there to help me with Dayla when she was a small girl and I’m so glad. She now has her own memories of you. You always showed us what a strong marriage was with Uncle Johnny and that it’s ok to be strong willed. You are in the arms of your love again, where you belong. Love you ❤️

I have so many fond memories of her and Uncle John, such a great joy to be be around them, Aunt Margaret, taught me how to crochet, and if I made a mistake ,she always said ,,we will fix that, she was the best. Going tubing in the water, boating, watching them playing cards,,her peach cobbler. So many to write down. I'm sorry we didn't get to Arizona to see them more often. I did talk to them often, I'll miss that to. I'll pray for the family to get through the loss of Aunt Margaret. God Bless you all , lots of love to each of you.

Nana a word that most of us called you even if we just met you for 5 minutes but for me I knew you 15 years but seemed like a lifetime. You and papa took me in like one of your grandkids from day 1 and I took you in as my nana and papa. You both taught me to always be strong, dependable and stand up for what is right no matter what or who liked it. You also taught me what true love really was the bond that you two had was amazing I hope you two are dancing the sky away. I love you and will always remember and cherish the memories we had until I see you again. Oh and I will take great care of your DeeDe!!
