    I loved Mrs Margaret. She was born the same year my Mom was and was there when mine died. We shared the love of cooking and she shared her recipes with me, even the chocolate pie. She had a way of making everyone feel loved and her smile just warmed your soul. The whole family is very special to me and she will be greatly missed !!
