Rest in peace my dear Aunt Margaret. I will always remember your beautiful soul and how you inspired me to live life to the fullest. Your profound faith in our Lord, love of your family, and positive attitude will always be remembered as part of your legacy. You were a lover of peace and your beautiful sense of style was with you until your final moments on this Earth. I am very grateful to have shared some special times with you and your family and you will always be in my thoughts and prayers. I am blessed that we had the chance to go to Hawaii together.

On behalf of theTellez familyg I give my condolences to the Garcia family. For my Aunt Margaret she was so loving but the most one thing that I remember about her that I'll cherish is so when we prayed the rosary everyday my Aunt Margaret and Gracie would come over to Mom's home and with my mom we would pray the rosary and so with that I'll say that as we pray for her Aunt Margaret she and my Mom will be with us and she will be praying with us, so we will always have her close to our heart and we can take solace and comfort that the Blessed Mother and Jesus will be with us when we're praying. That the power of the Rosary is said God's love is with us in the Rosary. We will miss her and we love her and we will always think of her as we our pray our rosaries. I will miss you Aunt Margaret, I love you.

I was fortunate to grow up in a close family, where my Aunt lived right across the street. I have so many fond childhood memories, I can recall a time when I wanted her to be my mom. She was a wonderful aunt, who will be missed very much! She never grew old and her smile was like sunshine and heart like gold, she was fun and loved dearly by all. We will all miss her, but take solace in knowing she is reunited in Heaven with her loved ones gone before her. To my cousins, we know your pain and we are here for you.
