    I am so very sad to have to be saying good bye to my bff. Margaret was the kindest, caring , thoughtful person that I have ever met . She never ever complained about anything. Never ever said a bad thing about anyone. She loved all of you more then anything in this world. You, her family were her everything. She had a way of handling everything that came her way with grace. She was a woman and she lived it.
    It’s time to rest my friend. I miss you already.

    I’m sorry that first post should read that she was a women of “faith”. I can see her reading this and laughing at me because this isn’t tbe first time I’ve made this kind of mistake where she was concerned. Sorry. Big hugs
