Tim and family,
Our prayers and sympathy to you and your family for the loss of your mom. She was a lovely lady. Remembering her at Mt.Pilgrim Church, and visiting her at home and her giving us hand crocheted dish cloths she made herself. When we visited my mom at White Oak, we would stop by and see her too. She loved Mt Pilgrim and eating sweets. We loved our conversations, and watching all the solar figures in the window. She will be missed.

We have so many fond memories of “Aunt Margaret” over the years. From her kind and gentle spirit, to her jokes and infectious laugh, she will forever hold a very special place in our hearts. We were so very blessed to have Aunt Margaret in our lives. She will be tremendously missed! Lifting up prayers for the Milstead family during this difficult time.

Kevin, Johnette, Ashlyn, Braxton, and Jayden Kinard
