Aunt Maggie was a woman of grace and faith. She raised her children with the fortitude of faith that she held within her heart . I always held the highest respect for her resolve in the determination and love with which she raised her children. She was a graceful woman who made a difference in many ways. Quietly exemplified the qualities that a gentle soul would bless us with.
