    My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Maggie. Although we hadn’t had the opportunity to meet Maggie personally, we do understand the pain of losing one so dear. We would like to share with you comfort we have experienced from Gods word found in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. Our Heavenly Father is truly a wonderful God of comfort he is always there for the broken hearted and those crushed in spirit….. ( Psalm 34:18 ) Please take a few moments share your memories with those who surround you, for the memories shared are the ones most truly cherished, may they bring you comfort and peace as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.

    Aunt Elizabeth was my weekend mom; I would go stay with her and see Jamie! She was always proud of all us siblings, and all our kids?She didn’t treat me any different as I had to clean house too?She would say go get the thing off the thing?I miss her always introducing us to everyone?She never met a stranger and I heard she always visited people who past! She was a loving person and Fayetteville truly lost a piece of their heart ❤️ I am sending all my love to Aunt Elizabeth’s children; she was indeed proud of you!
