Margaret was my parent's neighbor for many years. She was a true example of Matthew 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven"
She was always kind, loving, caring and helpful to everyone. I will treasure all of our conversations and especially the last one we had a couple months ago when we talked about seeing Jesus when this life was over. I will see Margaret again too!
