I am going to miss my friend, Margaret, very much. We've known each other since 1969 when she was the diagnostician at my school in San Antonio. Later I shared her condo with her for a year. We had so many good times together and I got to know her sister, Cathy, as well, before she passed away. She and Bill remained good friends with me until he passed away. They were such a perfect match for each other and so in love. Most recently, I would go see Margaret in the retirement home as often as possible and we enjoyed going to eat Mexican food at El Fenix and going to movies. I know she is in a better place now and with her love Bill again. Please accept my deepest sympathy and love to all her family. And Gary, you deserve a gold star in your crown for the way you took care of her when she could no longer take care of herself. God bless you all, Sheri
Sheri McCoy, August 22, 2018 I am so sorry to hear about Margaret's passing. I loved her. She was my mentor when I first became a diagnostician. She was so much fun, so knowledgeable, and helped me become the best I could be!! I will keep everyone in my prayers!! Sincerely, Lonnie Payne Lonnie Payne, August 2, 2018
