DJ and I would go over Margaret's and Roberts house on the weekends to played cards till 2 or 3am . We would have such a good time and many laughs teasing one another. Went dancing few times and just have fun and relaxing times just being together talking. Margaret was not only my sister-in-law but we were good friends told secrets to each other. No matter what she would always have a smile. A very Sweet Caring person. Now at peace with her husband Robert,brothers Edward, Joaquin(DJ) and Roy but most of all with her Mom. God bless, now your are at peace.
You will be miss and all the happy memories will always be with me.

I have so many memories of Margaret that I do not even know where to begin. She always had a way to make me laugh and was a ray of sunshine. The first time I met her she made me feel at home and included me in her family. From birthday parties to holidays to just getting together and visiting there was this warm feeling about being around her. Even when she became ill, she gave it her all till the end. No words, can express how much I cared for her and the pain that I know the family is feeling. May you find comfort in knowing that she was loved by so many and that she is not suffering anymore.
With deepest sympathy,
