To Gayle and family, Grandma was such a pleasure to take care of and a joy to be around. She is missed so much by all of us at Fair Winds. I only knew her for 2 years but it seemed like I knew her for many more. I will miss her very much. I will always remember the day that I kissed her on the right cheek. She smiled at me then turned her left cheek to me and smiled. Then said ''Other side." So I kissed her left cheek too. She brought many happy memories to me that I will remember always. My deepest sympathies go out to you for your lose of a wonderful Lady.

Susan Check

To the Bricker family...Sorry for your loss of Aunt Margaret . She was a special lady. Love to all.

We were sorry to hear of Aunt Margaret's passing...she surely lived a long and loving life. She left a beautiful family to carry on her love and kindness. I can just picture my mother and Aunt Margaret sitting together and enjoying a long talk. My mother had a special place in her heart for her. I will always remember her sweet smile. Our very deepest sympathy. May God Bless!

Dear Gayle,

I was not aware that Grandma had gone to herLord until Paula told me today. I wish youpeace,hope, and love for she was a joy and she will be sadly missed. My Mom passed (Steffie) on Nov. 22 and I know that only time will heal, but they will never br forgotton.


Even though Margaret lived a full long life I I know this is a very difficult time for the family. Something that has always given me comfort is a scripture at Revelation 21:4, it says, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I sincerely hope this brings you some comfort.
