I grew up next door to John and Margaret, what great neighbors and friends they were.
John taught me that nothing was impossible, if you could dream it, you could build it. Margaret taught me that nothing was impossible, if you could dream it, you could do it. I thank you for contributing in making me who I am today. The last thing John and Margaret needed was another kid in the house, but that was me, I practically lived there.

Thank you Margaret for the best dill pickles ever made...the best cakes and pies....the cookies, the brownies...the maple syrup...the pancakes and everything else that I ate at your house for 18 years.

I put my mother to rest last week, and this week my home away from home mother(Margaret) will be with her.

You may be gone, but thanks for the millions of great memories that I get to keep.
