Dear Graham family, You are all in my thoughts and prayers. What a beautiful woman Margaret was, both inside and out. I enjoyed my interactions with her and with all of her family throughout the years. What a blessing she was to each of you and to everyone she interacted with. She always greeted me with a kind word, a smile, and a warm hug. Share your memories with each other and know that Jesus is with you all as you shed tears and share laughter. Love, Martha Johnson

Helen, Frank, Christy, and family, our prayers, thoughts and hearts are with each of you. Margaret was a beloved friend to both of us and someone we loved dearly. She could always bring a smile and laughter to those around her with her wonderful sense of humor. She was a friend and a confidant who always had a shoulder to lean on, always took the time to listen and always had a warm hug and words of encouragement. I treasure the time I spent through the years with this sweet lady and her precious family. The Graham family has always and will always be a blessing in my life. Free of pain and suffering, you all have a very special angel watching over you. We will miss you, Margaret and look forward to the day we see your sweet smile and hear your infectious laugh again. May God bless each of you always. Love you all.
