We will always remember Margaret for her generous and kind nature...from making my wedding headpiece to gifting the kids at Christmas. We know your soul is with Tom and Ellen and looking down on Rick, Laurie, Dylan and Collin.

Margaret will be SO MISSED in Stone Harbor at her condominium. Her smile was addicting, her laugh and her darling Minnie were adorable. She ALWAYS took time to come up and say HI! She will remain to me always, one of those people that you can never ever forget. I will miss her a lot and waving to her through her storm door in Hall Harbor! Here is to YOU MARGARET !!!! GOD BLESS YOU. He has a good one now that you are with him and your Dearest Tom.
