"To reach the port of Heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it. But we must sail, and not drift nor lie at anchor."(Oliver W.Helms).
Now Rest In Peace, Margaret. May you find love, grace,and mercy in the arms of Jesus.
To see and hear you laugh with joy was one of the greatest pleasures I remember. I miss you and love you.

How well I remember you at this age when we raced wildly around Uncle John and Aunt Della's yard. I will miss our memory chats. Love and sympathy to your family.
