My memories of Margaret goes back to when your Grandmother Rosie was very ill. Margaret is my Dad's first cousin and my Mom and Aunt Anna Egnor would come on weekends and stay at the hospital to give the family a break and I would stay at the house with your Mom. She was always so good to me. I am so sorry for your loss. Our love and prayers. I would love to be there Friday, but my Mom has dementia and I can't leave her. I am Chuck Roberts' daughter.
