    Danielle, Melissa, and Bobby… I am so sorry for your loss. Margo was one of the sweetest ladies I’ve known. She was so easy to love. She showed her love for her children and grandchildren abundantly. I know she will be missed. I’m keeping you all in my prayers during this difficult time. Rest assured that she is at peace and is no longer suffering. She is now in the arms of our Lord and is once again reunited with her loved ones in the house of our Savior. God bless you all.

    I am heartbroken over Margo’s passing. I have known her for many many years. She was a very kind, giving and loving Mother and Grandmother. After she married my brother I started calling her ‘SIL’ for Sister-in-Law..
    Bobby and Margo were true Soulmates. The Lord took her much too soon, so I know he had a special place for her and into the arms of those that passed before her. Fly high SIL
