    Im so sorry for your loss I met Margaret at Arkansas Children’s Hospital when she came there to work at the eye clinic part time. Its a small world as years later I would get to meet her daughters and eventually finding out their mom was the sweet Margaret that helped out in our office. Condolences to the family.
