    I met Mrs. Margaret through my husbands gramndmother Lorena Raper. They attended the same church and were dear friends. Mrs. Margaret took her to do chores when Mrs. Raper’e eyesight worsened. She was a very pleasant and thoughtful lady. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. My thoughts are with you all.

    Debbie- I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a special lady. I enjoyed all the times spent at your house growing up as well as working with her when she worked at City Hall. You are in my thoughts!

    Debbie and Mike,
    Sorry to learn of your mother passing. I remember working with her (and Debbie) in the office at Supak & Sons. She was such a nice person. Everyone there thought the world of her. Please accept my condolences and know that my thoughts are with you both.
