Sorry for your loss .I knew Margaret when she lived in Indianapolis. She helped me after my divorce. 4 women on our street would play cards while the children played it was a fun time.

Margaret was like a sister to me, and I regret not spending more time with her these last few years. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. I will always remember the times at Mexico Beach and her telling my granddaughter, Jessica, that if she told a "lie" her tongue would turn black. She told her that after she had been eating candy that turned it black. The last time I talked to her, we laughed about it and she asked if Jessica remembered it. She was always good for a laugh and was full of mischief. She will be missed. May God bless each of you with good memories and peace in your hearts. We love you all. John & Berta

My heart goes out to all my family, especially Uncle Fred Brumley, Mark Glisson, Lisa Glisson, Brian and Chuck Brumley. Our hearts are all saddened at the loss of Aunt Margaret Brumley and she will sorely be missed. I believe there is a great reunion going on in heaven this week and we all need to remember that she is breathing easy and free of all pain. Her family and friends were awaiting her arrival this past Sunday and I wish I could have witnessed the excitement. Until we meet again...I love you Aunt Margaret!
