Margaret, Where do I start... You were the most amazing mother-in-law. I loved our conversations and how you had such a passion and caring heart toward everyone. You welcomed me in the family from the first day I used the toilet paper for a pillow. Thank you for you big heart and raising such amazing children. You rubbed off making your children wonderful parents. I am never one that knows what to say, but my heart has a whole in it that will forever be yours.

Margaret, my sister, my Godmother, my friend. How I will miss sharing a cup of coffee with you when coming back to Minneota, always had good conversation, good cookies, especially Belgium, and once in a while a cold "one". Sisters are forever. All my love , Kathleen Boogaard
