I send my condolences to Margaret's daughter, Vicky. I have great memories of playing Annie Oakley and Dale Evans with Vicky when she lived across the street from me on Slingluff Ave. And her mother was always very sweet to me. So sorry to hear of Margaret's death. Take care.

Vicky, So sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. I will always remember her wonderful smile and how eager she was to help with projects we were doing at school. I am unable to come to calling hours due to an appointment but please know you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
