Freddie & I met Mrs. Margaret the first time when she worked for Bryce Cox Optical on the corner of Hwy. 44 and Cornerview. We both loved her, she was a special person. She always remembered us no matter where we ran into her at. We followed her to whatever optical office she went to work at and always had her fit our glasses for us when we needed a new pair until she retired.
Prayers for her family in this difficult time.

Thoughts and prayers to the entire family...
I was lucky enough to be welcomed into y'alls family a long time ago by becoming friends with Misty.
Granny always welcomed me to her home and made me feel welcome a long with Mr. Clyde.
Any time she saw me in the passing years she always had a smile and greeting for me if we ran in to one another.
I'm glad to have known her.
