I was saddened to learn of Margaret's death. She and I were first cousins and we grew up together in Greensboro. I graduated a year ahead of Margaret. We were able to see each other over the years and in the past months. My thoughts and prayers are with Dave, Dale and their families and all the nieces/nephews. Margaret is finally at peaceful rest, where she has longed to be. I love you, Margaret and will miss you. Betty Meeks O'Neal
