We were blessed to get to know Margaret and her family through the assisted living residences where Margaret and my mom Mary Sue lived together. These two ladies ate every meal together and enjoyed playing games and sharing moments. Margaret friendship was such a comfort to me as she befriended my mother well. They had so much in common and laughed togHer little doggie was such a sweetheart and I know mom loved him as much as Margaret. The most amazing memory I have is when I was considering moving mom to a different facility and was really struggling with the idea that mom would lose her close friend then out of the blue Margaret said you know I am moving. I was shocked and asked where to and would you believe it was the exact residence I was considering for mom. So it was a done deal and the two moved within weeks of each other and lived right across the hall from one another. God is so good! Monica and I have walked this road together and I am thankful for her friendship as well. I am praying for your family.
