William, Lisa, grandkids, Sarah, Sam & Helen, we're sorry to learn of Margaret's passing. As your hearts break know that our's are too. Margaret was a great spirited lady in all aspects of her life. First and foremost, she lived a Christian life and did not mind witnessing for her Lord. Rejoice in the weeks to come with the knowledge she is where she was longing to be, with her Lord and the family and friends that left this earth before her. As mama used to say, we'll meet again on that heavenly shore. Love & prayers to each of you. Loretta & Buck Cox
