My heart is so broken to hear of the passing of my friend. Margaret Dixon was a joy to know. She had told me she was moving, just didn't know it was permanently. I'll miss her. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. 2nd Corinthians 5: 8&9

May our Lord wrap you up in his love. I am so sorry for your loss. Margaret was a wonderful person that I had the honor to know.
