John, Linda, Sammy and families:

You are so lucky to have had your mom around for so long. She was a beautiful person. It's hard to lose somebody you love but your memories will keep her close forever. Be thankful she was with you as long as she was and that she is with your dad in heaven now. That's pretty darned good!

John, you know how special your mom and dad were to us. Margo will be greatly missed but she is now in the Father's loving hands. You are in our prayers and we can not tell you how much we admire the son you have been to your mother. She always had to brag a little on you when we went to visit. May you bask in the sweet memories of you precious mother. Jesse and Brenda
