Dear Johnston Family,
I was truly sadden today to read of Margery's passing. She was a beautiful, kind and caring women. An especially close (sister-like) friend to my mother Margaret McLean 1924-2004.
Remember to hold each other extra close during the difficult days ahead and to cherish each and every day you shared with your wife, mother, grandmother & great grandmother.
Some off my fondest childhood memories were when the Johnston and McLean families would gather and visit in our South Windsor homes.
Most sincerely,

April 17, 2014

Dear Ross, Rick and Jolayne,
I was so sorry to read of Margery's passing. It has been so long since you lived behind us on Academy Dr. How many times did we hop the fence to visit? And of course me babysitting Jolayne when she was a little girl is still a fond memory. I looked through the pictures/slide show and it reminds us of what a lovely lady Margery was, and I'm sure you have many happy family memories to comfort you at this time.
