Gail, I know the “Golden Girls” from Guardian Care are catching up on old times. Mama and Miss Margaret had a special friendship. I miss our daily contact but please know I feel your loss. She is in a better place.

Story and Gail’

Our hearts ache with you. Margaret was truly a wonderful person and special friend. We have such fond memories, such as the times she helped our little daughters select our birthday and Christmas gits at “Charlie Peele’s Store”. We still have the gifts. She never failed to tell us after church how pretty our choir special was and her coconut cake was to fight for. She will be greatly missed.

Margaret was truly one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. I remember her from my childhood days in the R-K area in the 1940s, and even then her gentle smile, soft voice,and cheery expression made her special. She touched my heart especially in later yrs when I’d visit my cousins Beulah White & Eunice Banks at Guardian Care and find the 3 of them sitting in the lobby people-watching and talking. We’d all exchange hugs, and Margaret felt like my family, too. She was an RKHS 1932 graduate, as was my aunt Verlie Doughtie (Gardner). I will sincerely miss this dear, gracious, genteel lady!
