We will miss Margaret very much. Both she and Ed were very special and will be remembered for their safe, shining examples to us. So glad, you were and are, a part, of our lives. Thinking of all of the family at this time, whom you loved so very much. Joe and Sherrie Nelson

Millie and I only knew Margret & Ed from our annual gathering at Cid Convention. They for many years would take a collective memory photo of all the local and visiting ministers attending. They would generously and gladly hand them out to any and all who would like to have one. They both were very definitely a Sister and Brother in this great family and they both will be so very much missed.
All our Love to the Family.

Always glad to see Margaret and Edward at conventions and special meetings. My dad was a friend to Ed. They will be missed but their lives were a good testimony of truth.
