I am going to miss you Aunt Margaret !! You were one of my favorite aunt's that I loved dearly. I have wonderful memories of you and my childhood. I still remember you taking care of me, giving me baths and letting me run around as free as a bird with nothing on but my bare skin!! I used to love those times. You always were smiling and laughing and gave us so much love. You will remain in my memories and heart forever.
