I extend my heartfelt sympathy to Jay and family. I remember your mom well. She was a very nice lady. I remember her from when we were in Cub Scouts, as well as your dad who I recall was the Scout Master.

I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. One encouraging thought you might find comforting is found at John 5:28, 29. “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” God gives us this beautiful hope that he will soon resurrect our dead loved ones and we can see them again on a paradise earth.

Margaret was a wonderful person. She lived next door to my grandparents when I was growing up in Glen Dale. I have many happy memories of her and her husband, Jimmy. They were very good to me when I was growing up. I was very sad to hear of her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. She will be missed.
