my deepest condolences to Sue and family. I knew Margaret well, she was my brown owl, I was friends with Sue growing up and I knew her from the post office also. She was a beautiful lady and always had a smile on her face when she saw you. She will be missed

Heaven's Gates

I imagine a beautiful bench setting just inside Heaven's gate

Where our loved ones often visit to just seat and wait.

I imagine that the day God called you home

The bench was full and there was standing room only

As there would be many to greet you while our hearts are lonely.

I imagine the laughter and the memories shared

As you've touched so many lives and always cared

I imagine you there with an outreached hand

To guide each of us when we too reach that land

Loved and Missed Always
