We were all very sad to see of Margaret's passing. My parents, Johnnie & Carmelita (or Carma as Margaret used to say), have fond memories of her at the beach and visiting with her in High Point. I also enjoyed visiting with her briefly a few times many years ago at the beach. We were sorry that we did not get to see her while she was at Shannon Gray. Our condolences to all of the family. (Johnnie, Carmelita & Eric Richardson)
