Margaret, Betsy, and Family,

My deepest sympathies for your loss. Your mom was a bright light in my life growing up. I loved hanging out at your house because it was so full of love, and your mom made sure I always felt that love whenever I was there. She and Wendall will be watching over you all together again.

To Nancy's family: Our deepest condolences to you all. Nancy was such a sweetheart and caring person. I remember her laugh and smile over the years when I'd see her at my brother George/Evelyn's house or at Doney events. Peace and blessings to you all. Susan (Wilson) and Duncan Wilkie
