    I went to MCHS with Margarete, although she was one class ahead of me. Everyone loved her. She always had time and a smile for us underclassmen and kids who didn’t have a lot. When I worked at WJJM, the local radio station in Lewisburg, later on she loved to call and request songs occasionally. She loved good music…Rock and Roll. I’m heartbroken. I’ll always remember her and I’m sure I’ll see her again. In Christ, Bill Massey.

    May she r est in peace. She was a beautiful lady. My hubby was having heart surgery in Nashville, and I was alone and scared, and she walked in the door to be with me. I will never forget her. Prayers and condolences to her precious family.

    I am shocked and sad to hear this news. My deepest sympathy to all the family. I am so sorry for the pain in your hearts. I pray that God will comfort your hearts with His eternal love. He is faithful to His promises. When Lazarus died, Jesus wept even tho He knew He was going to raise him. I believe He wept because of the grief and pain He saw in Mary and Martha and those that loved Lazarus. I believe that same Savior weeps with His children when their hearts are broken. God bless you with His peace and perfect love. I know this is a very loss.. Loce, Linda
