    God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be
    so he put his arms around you and whispered,
    “Come to Me”

    With tearful eyes we watched you
    and saw you pass away
    and although we love you dearly
    we could not make you stay.

    A golden heart stopped beating
    hard working hands at rest.
    God broke our hearts to prove to us
    He only takes the best~ author unknown but said everything I couldn’t
    The Mold was broken and there will never be another

    Margaret was such a wonderful person!! When I was a girl and young woman I so looked up to her and wanted to be sweet and kind like she was. She was always such a blessing in my life! She was generous and always good to all my family! Everyone in my family loved Margaret! She was a dear friend to my mother! I know all of my family that is already in Heaven are so happy to have her there with them!! We’ll miss her here this side of Heaven but our loss is Heavens gain! She was a sweet ,sweet person and I feel like I’m a better person having known her!

    She was such a special last. I loved Butch and Ernie and considered them family I will forever remember all the wonderful times we spent with them.
    Butch was so special to me she was family if not by blood but by Gods grace.
