Dear Dee, Fran, and family,

Please accept our deepest condolences. Margaret was a lovely woman who never spoke an unkind word about anyone. She was a lot like her mother, my Aunt Stella. I hold many special memories of my cousin. I am so happy that we finally had "Our 1st Cousin Gratta Reunion" last year. Wonderful day sharing stories and memories. Rest in peace, Margaret, you will be deeply missed. Patty & Chris

Dear Deanna and family, I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. Growing up , I spent as much time in your house as I did in my own. She will be missed.
