Condolence from Mary Frances Burns McMillan on November 6th, 2011 12:00 am

Dear Charlene,
I was so sorry to hear about Margaret’s death. She was one of my favorite “Burns” relatives. Daddy Clyde and I saw her last year when we went up for the reunion. Even though she was having so much trouble, she was upbeat and laughing. Although we hadn’t been together for years, it felt like no time had passed and we “took up where we left off”.
My prayers go out to you and the rest of the family. Margaret made cloudy days brighter! I will miss her.
Love,
Mary Frances

Condolence from Alfred Waldeck on November 7th, 2011 12:00 am

My wife and I had the pleasure of knowing Margaret when we did landscaping for her over the years. What a wonderful lady. She was so enjoyable to work for and know. We always visited with her after the work was done. Will miss her.
