Heaven is brighter, they have added another star. I was privileged to attend Church and Sunday school with Margaret and what an inspiration she was. No matter what her circumstances were, she never complained, always thankful for what God had given her and the privilege to witness to everyone, always pleasant. Your loss is truly heaven's gain. We had lunch after church with a group of Sunday School ladies several times, and what sweet memories they are. My prayers are with you and just remember all the wonderful memories she left you.
