My Dear Cousin, there are SO MANY pictures & things I would love to share but there aren't enough words or time to cover everything! I made my way into our family 20 years after you & we were two peas in a pod! It was dangerous to put us in the same room together! I wished we had taken that cruise we talked about but they would have left us stranded in the middle of the ocean after kicking us off the ship! To say love you & miss you terribly right now is an understatement! Random texts, calls, you showing up in my driveway. You didn't just go to a party, you WERE the party! You even walked down the aisle with me at my wedding. You loved your family & so proud of all of them! The morning you left us I know for certain that you organized a parade, wearing every piece of bling you ever owned and even Heaven didn't know what to do except join the party! More than anything, thank you! For your love, for your laughter & love of life, for just always being you! You have left a tremendous void by your absence but what memories we all will have & the blessing of having you in our lives! Angel & I are heartbroken but we take comfort knowing that we will see you again! Until then, give our love to all who have gone on before us! See ya later, alligator!

My heart hurts for your loss. What a dynamic personality the world will miss. Margaret was one of the most passionate women I have ever met. I could recount warm memories of milk and warm tollhouse pan cookies, fashion observation quips, sewing enlightenment, boys, raising children, politics, etcetera, but one thing stands out. As passionate and opinionated a mother, grandmother, wife and human being that Margaret was, I am so grateful to have had the privilege to hear speak her desire to pursue and to know Christ in her last weeks. We all have our own unique walk in this life. Her’s was exactly as it should be, running to the finish line. Margaret has left an amazing legacy in all of you. She could really make an impression on a person. My prayers of comfort and peace are with you daily. We will all miss her.

Margaret Ann, you are an inspiration to us all! Your ability to endure the unimaginable is unparalleled. You will be missed by all who knew you. Kathleen and I really enjoyed the trips we took, especially the train ride to New Orleans for the National Elks Convention. At times I thought we would be kicked off the train, yet other times we were the life of our car with other people joining us. Your dedication to Elk values, Elk traditions, and Elk charities, especially your support of the veterans, is remarkable. Margaret Ann, I am a better person for having know you!

We were both at Baker High School in Columbus, Ga. So sorry about Margaret's passing but at least she is now out of pain and in a better place. My condolences to all of you.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
