My most lasting memory of MeMe was when I had my one and only Son Jayson.. Carrie Sue gave birth to Mandy and I had Jayson. We both stayed at her house during this time. I didn't know anything about new borns but little did I know she would be my teacher all my life on raising him. I literally Thank & loved her for this.. We stayed very close from then own. I helped her many times in my life because actually she was like a Mother to me. I miss those times. She was a Great Person. I will always remember her. It's dad to realize the struggle she endured later in life. She earned her wings today. Fly high Meme. I love you!!

Margaret was a delightful lady. I became acquainted with her while she lived in Buna. She embraced life with joy and shared her enthusiasm with everyone. She was the ultimate sports mom, in the bleachers (or her lawn chair) on a moment's notice. My condolences to her family.
