Our deepest sympathy to Margaret's family. May the memories that we hold in our hearts give us peace. We have such beautiful memories of Margaret and Charles when St. Agnes was at the log chapel. We even visited them in our once in a lifetime visit to Walt Disney World in Florida. She was a funny and wonderful person. I thank God that our paths crossed in this life and that we will see her and Charles in Heaven some day. Love, prayers and peace to all, Mike and Sharon Bube Stephanie, Sarah, Sherry, Jeanette, Jennifer, Jamie
