    I’m happy Margaret is home with her parents and Kelly. She is going to be so missed. She was like a sister to me and I love her dearly. She always comforted me as though she were my sister. She always told me how much she loved me and I loved her back the same. Margaret, we will all miss you, especially Bill. Your brother, Kerry, is missing you terribly and wishes so bad we could come down to celebrate your amazing life. We will celebrate your life here at home and maybe eat a cinnamon roll or two for you. <3

    Margaret was one of a kind. The words used in her obituary are truthful and well said. I will miss my sister terribly. I focus on the younger days filled with joy, as well as growing older together. Bill is a man of gold! Bill has our love and prayers.
