"Aunt Margaret" was always happy, cheerful and loving to me, my mother, Vera Danning, and my grandparents Lee and Ruth Standard.
Whenever I saw her she always gave us vegetables and said to come see her.
Our relationship was a distant one but she was very much a part of my childhood.
May the family be covered with peace and comfort during this time of loss. May 'Aunt Margaret' be healthy again as she waits for us to join her and the rest of our family.
