    Margaret and I met in 1964 when my husband was at Ft. Euctis. I got a job at the Colonial Store in Williamsburg and that is where I meet her and we became instant friends. We kept in touch for many years, last time is when she came to Ft. Lauderdale to visit me, we moved here in 1977 from Pittsburgh. She has been in my heart for a long time. She was a very special person in many ways; compassionate, loving, fun, understanding; great mother.

She loved you girls so much and was always bragging about you. Thoughts and prayers to Brian, Missey, and Kim as well as her siblings.
