So sorry for your loss. I have known Margaret for a long time. I always helped her with her Part D Plan of her Medicare. I so much enjoyed her visits and always had a good laugh. Just this fall I called her, but her phone was disconnected and I really tried to check around to see where she was located. Of course with all the privacy rules they wouldn't tell me if she was at the home. It was so sad to see her obituary, she was very special in her very own way. I won't forget her, and she will always be one
of my favorite seniors I had the privilege to work with. Dodie
