Margaret was my Mom's closest cousin.  In multiple visits to her home as a teen and college student, I had the wonderful opportunity to learn from her about my South Carolina heritage.  She was so gracious and kind to me, truly devoted to her family and church.  She also had a wonderful sense of humor and a directness that kept this teenager a bit in awe.  I have not seen Margaret and her family since my Mom died, but to her family, please know that she was loved and appreciated and will be missed.

My Dear Aunt Margaret How much you meant to me for always taking in my Grandmother in her later years. I always appreciated your stories of my grandparents and great grandparents. I always admired you for your strength independence and guidance anytime I came to visit you. Your southern charm and your smile will forever be remembered in my heart. You meant so much to me and to both my father and mother during their lives. I love you RIP Aunt Margaret

Our precious Aunt Margaret--she was a faithful servant, mentor, confidant, caretaker, musician, lover of history and sports, and many more things, but most of all, she was our friend.  We will miss her so much!   Love and sympathy to all of her family. We all were truly blessed to have had her with us for almost 90 years.    What a wonderful life she lived!
