Condolence to Stanley, Susan, and Mark. To all their family and the church family that was so much a part of Aunt Margaret's life. She always sent us birthday cards. I see her talking in Finn to Grammy
Helping in the kitchen and your dad working on a project or two.
Her visits or when she sang in the choir or laughter that was infectious. We will all miss her.

Bill's girls and her many nieces and nephews
