Larry and All the Family,
We extend our heartfelt condolences. Margaret was such a sweet person and we always enjoyed chatting with her at Fulmer's and also when we would see her elsewhere. Often times she would be out on her lunch break, but she always took time to talk and never rushed through our conversations. She will be missed by many. May our Lord console each of you during this time of loss and give you peace.
Much Love, Debra & Derrill

Our heart breaks for the loss of this dear sweet lady. Mrs. Margaret was one person you could count on to be pleasant and positive. She was always so kind to my family and me regardless of the circumstances. Mr. Larry thank you and Mrs. Margaret for being our true friends throughout the years and your committed support. Mere words cannot describe what a good person she is and what she meant to our community and us. May a life well lived and a heart of compassion shared ease your grief. We love you all.
