I have such wonderful memories of Margaret. We worked together at Natco and that was the start of a wonderful friendship that has lasted over many years. She will be missed; however, I am sure these last few years have been hard and it is good to know she is in GOOD health again and smiling. A wonderful lady and a wonderful friend. Our sympathy to the Family.
