Remembrances

  1. I met Margarite about 5 years ago, as she and my sister were roommates where they lived. She always loved dressing up for special holiday activities. She enjoyed playing games, going to bible study, getting her hair or nails done, taking pictures, and going out for walks. She enjoyed life, looking forward to her daily talk with her daughter. Until we meet again, rest in peace dear friend.
