  1. Travis, Terry, Jody and Tiffany, I mourn with you for the loss of such a great person. Two weeks ago I was going through old files at the office and came across pictures of Margaret. She was so loved by her clients and friends. She worked hard and was compassionate to the people she served. She was a good friend and I loved her.
    You will be missed Margaret, Love Doreen and RP
