Herman, Gene, Diana, Keith and the rest of the family, we are so sad to hear of Margaret's passing. I remember being at your home so many, many times and was always treated so well. Margaret was so kind, generous, and loving. I remember going to STAR sales to pick out flowers for my wedding with Margaret and Diana. Then Margaret and the ladies of her garden club arranged all the flowers for us. So kind of those ladies. Will be praying for you all during this time that God will grant you strength and peace. Love you ALL!
