We were very sad to here of your loss. The time we got to know her at NHC, we could tell she was a great lady. After my grandmother (Maudell Mathews) passed away at NHC we missed not seeing all the ladies that we got to know while visiting there. I know she will be missed my many, but she is now in a better place. With Deepest Sympathy, Ralph and Phyllis McAlister

Andy,Vickie, and family, We were so sorry to hear about Mrs. Margaret's passing. I know her health has been in decline the last few years. She was such a sweet lady and we have such fond memories of her as I know you do. Just know our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. Death is never easy, but I hope you will take comfort in knowing where she is celebrating today and that we'll all see her again. We love you all and if we can do anything, we are a phone call away.
