Margaret was my mother-in-law at one time. She was a very gentle and caring lady. My daughter and her mother and uncles are going to miss her deeply. I was lucky to know her.

Dear family, it is very difficult to lose a precious love one. May your grieving hearts be comforted by God's Loving words at Philippians 4:6,7 and Psalms 34:18. May those words show you that God does not want you to suffer in grief.
