We are greatly saddened by the passing of Margaret. She was a lovely person with an open and generous heart. Her journey through through life was not always easy, but she was always able to maintain a positive Christian outlook. She will be missed, but will remain to us a memory of inspiration and affection.
With deepest sympathy,
Neal and Shari Brand
