To The Family of Margaret Slagle: I extend my sincere sympathies to all of you at the loss of your Mother. While I did not know her personally, I did know your Father, Billy, and Jimmy who I think was the baseball pitcher of note in the Augusta area. I first met Billy when he began to work for Merry Brothers Brick & Tile Company back around 1960. He and I worked together for about two years. Knowing Billy and Jimmy, I can only imagine that Miss Margaret was a fine Lady who kept the Family together and on level ground throughtout her life. I know she is with Our God in Heaven where she awaits the remainder of her family to join her some day. May God Bless each of you and give you peace always. And keep her memory alive by recalling all the pleasant memories of her life with you.
