Oh to the children and grand children of Margaret. I am so saddened of hearing the passing of your mother. She was a good Christian woman. I'll will never forget her. She was a joy to work with and we had a lot of fun working together. She always amazed me. She could remember numbers and info that we would work with at Weiman! I would stand in amaze at her! I know you all have a bunch of memories to cherish! She loved everyone of you. Jesus just gained another angel to His Kingdom. I will keep you all in my prayers. May the Lord bless you all with peace and comfort during this time. RIP Margaret!! You are one of a kind!

To the Witt/Chaffin family, I want to send my condolences. Margaret was a wonderful woman. She could walk into a room and bring joy to all in it. I'm sorry I'm not able to be there, but I'm thinking of the boys and their families on the loss of their mother; as well as the brothers and sister who lost a sibling. I will keep y'all in my thoughts and prayers.
