Today I was catching up on my newspaper reading and came across Margaret’s obituary. I only meet her once through Nancy her daughter who I went to school with. I still have the fond memories of their nice family and of them welcoming me in their home. I lost a step aunt that lived in IA who was also the same age last year. Not many people make it to “101”. The both of them kept us envious, amazed and will forever be missed in our hearts.
