Thinking of you at this time-----You will be in my prayers.......Dean
Words cannot express our shock and sorrow over Margarette's passing. She was a wonderful friend, true lady, and beautiful person. I know that all of you, Roy, Ronald, Teresa, Tracie, and Mrs. Parker are deeply saddened and heavy hearted. Know that we love you and that you are uppermost in our thoughts and prayers, We will miss just knowing that she is not here and remember all the wonderful times our families had together. Peggy and James

I will hold all my memories very dear to my heart. You will be greatly missed. To all of the family, I love you and hope god gives you all the strength you need to get through this, my prayers are with all of you. Love you all, Kimberly
Some of the fondest memories of my childhood is time spent with Aunt Margarette. She was always smiling and makking us laugh. She was such a selfless person who cared deeply for others. Her passing is way too soon.To Roy, Mrs Parker, Ronald, Teresa, Tracie, Grand Children and Great Grand Children:No words can take away the sorrow you must feel. But hopefully, the the many cherised memories of Margarette will help give you strenght in the days ahead.With Deepest Sympathy,Don Parker
You were a great and wonderful friend in life and will be dearly missed. You always had a smile for everyone that knew you and made us all laugh, Now we are lucky to have you as an angel looking down on us and keeping us safe. We love you Margarette.
May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared, comfort you now and in the days ahead. Athough no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer. Peace, Prayers and Blessings, Sam, Dawn, Matt and Jackson Woods
