To the Neely family,

I am so sorry for the loss of Margaret. Although we didn’t see each other often, I considered her a dear friend. I enjoyed my time spent with her and all of the family. She loved her family fiercely and would do anything for them! I always admired her strong character and will miss our talks.

Peace be with the family knowing someone in heaven is looking after you and loves you so very much!

Love,
Lisa

Mike, Tracy, Craig and Jennifer,

I am so sorry for your loss. Aunt Margaret was a regular at my parents house on Yorkmont when I was growing up. Holidays, Birthdays and surprise visits. I know she meant the world to my mom and it was always great seeing them together. I will cherish those memories of us all in our younger days.

Margaret was a unique, sharp tongued woman. She never held back on her opinions, and it was always fun to hear what she had to say next.

She will be missed by all of us here in Birmingham. She is in good hands now and surrounded by other loved ones who have passed before her.

Much Love and Sympathy,

Tim Waldsmith
