    Margaret was such a sweet woman. I have fond memories of her and Bob when they would come visit my grandparents or we would come to Waco and visit them. Praying for everyone.

    Dear Brenda, sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. She had a nice long life & was loved by all.

    One of my memories of her was when y’all came to my home, I think in Mesquite so it was more than 30 years ago. She brought the best pinto beans I have ever had! I asked her for her recipe & she laughed.
    I’ve never been able to make them nearly as good.
