  1. Dear .Big. Mike, Michael and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Margaret was a very special person. She had a heart of gold and would give you the shirt off her back. I remember the countless times she opened her door to friends and relatives in need. I’ll always remember swimming at your house, sitting with Margaret listening to Lynn Anderson’s Rose Garden and having a beer during the countless home renovations. She always treated me like the grown up I wanted to be. She was there to give me guidance when I lost my father and my mother couldn’t be a mother. Now she is in heaven with Lona looking down on you. I can’t think of another person who deserves her angel wings more than Margaret. I hope you take comfort in knowing how many lives she has touched. You are in my thoughts and prayers. All my love, Heidi

  2. I express my condolence to Mike and Family. I last saw Margaret at Rose & Tom’s HAIR ON ELM last year before I went back to St. Petersburg, FL where I am located for 6 months of the year. Margaret I enjoyed talking to you and I know you had a strong will to live but God wanted you home where he had prepared a place for you.

  3. Michael, Mary and I were so sorry to hear of your loss. Margaret was such a shinning star who lit up prospect ave. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Bonnie and Mary
