My grandmother was my heart. I spent more time at her house growing up, then I did at my own house. So much of me is her. She never ever complained and never let anything worry her or stress her. I will truly miss her. Until we meet again.

To Cousins: Lil. Marguerite, Elaine ,Carolyn. and family we were very blessed to have Aunt Marguerite in our lives.
"Death?", We don't understand it, and can't run away from it. Losing someone is a very painful experience, especially someone you loved. Aunts are important people in everyone's lives because they influence how we grow up just as much as our parents. Losing a loving Aunt can be heartbreaking and hard. Aunt Marguerite was our ray of sunshine, with that gorgeous smile, contagious laughter, Spiritual soul and radius of love she shared all of us Her memories will always remain in our hearts and souls and we will miss her terribly. We are family and we are here for you all.
To Aunt Marguerite: Well kiddo we love you and will miss you dearly. Take your well deserved rest because God loves you best and he prepared a place for you.
Love Always♥
