My Dear Auntie Margaret
You fought a huge battle and persevered like an Angel 😇 till the end. I will miss you so much and our beautiful conversations we had will stay with me forever. Auntie being with you was like being with my own mother. We had so many laughs about so many different things. I will love you forever and I am so glad God has brought you home with no more worries or fears. You are now with your beautiful Granddaughter Ashley who you have missed so much.
May you all Rest In Peace together
