    Aunt Margaret will always be one of my most favorite people in the world! She has taught us all SO much about our family history – things we all need to know to keep the history alive in our hearts. She will be greatly missed, and remembered often. We all love
    her so much. Now we are happy for her reunion in Heaven with Uncle Glenn, Johnny and all her brothers and sisters.

    Dear Judy,

    It sounds like your mom was an amazing lady…and 98 years old. That is quite an accomplishment! I know she is now at peace, but it is always sad to lose your mother. Prayers and our love to you and all of your family.
