Dearest Anne Marie and Aaron and your families:I loved your mother like she was a sister. She had a special shining light around her--her sense of humor and her sheer delight in living were wonderful to behold. I shall always miss her. I send my love to you and your loved ones. Liz Gregg

I was just made aware of Margarets' passing. She was an amazing woman and had such a positive influence on my children. Margaret and Judge were like an extended family to myself and my children. My love goes out to Aaron and Anne Marie and their families. I have very happy memories of the time I worked for Judge and Margaret was always his biggest fan as he was hers. I am sure they are in heaven, enjoying a beer together and finally finding the peace they so rightfully deserve. Until we meet again, with loving memories, Pat Gerlach Serie, Matt, Beth and Megan

To Aaron, Ann Marie and Margaret's family,
We just heard about Margaret's passing yesterday and wanted to send our condolences to the family. We have many fond memories of good times with the Bixler and Wetzel families. When we moved to Greenville and knew not a soul, Lee and Margaret welcomed us as did their extended families. There will always be a warm spot in our hearts for the whole family and I will especially miss Margaret who was a great friend. Ann Marie and Aaron you had loving and caring parents and I'm sorry they weren't here longer for the two of you but they are together now and you have each other to remember the good times. God Bless you both, and all of Margaret's family in this sad time.

Roberta and David,
Even when a loved one has been ill for many years, it still leaves a hollow spot in the heart when that special person is gone, especially when it is your sister. You have our sympathy and prayers for your family as you all face this loss together.

To Aaron and Anne Marie and Margaret's family, a lifetime friendship with Lee and Margaret will always be with me, and having an extra son was the norm, and I have missed you all since the miles separated us. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all. I am sorry I can't be there, but Marty and Candi will share all of our blessings to Bixlers', Feltmans' and the Wetzel family.
