    Margaret was a wonderful seventh grade science teacher at Jackson Middle School. I always enjoyed working in her class with students that needed assistance. She had smiles and good relationships with the students. Also Margaret incorporated live animals into her curriculum for the students to learn about and touch. She had a gentle and caring spirit. Praying for her familiy at this time of grief.

  6. Cheryl condolence:

    My heart goes out to the family! God knows the pain we experience when we lose our loved ones, so He made a provision so that we never have to experience death at all.

  7. Arthur Mantzouris condolence:

    Im offering my condolences to the Family at this time and even though it may be tough to lose a loved one, there is a hope in seeing them again, in the future. It all comes from what we read in John 5:28,29 in which we read, Jesus Christ giving us a future promise of his, in that he is letting us know that he will carry out a Global resurrection and all dead ones, will be brought back to life again, but it doesnt end there. When they are brought back to life, then they will be given an opportunity to live forever on a peaceful earth, like it says in the Bible at Psalm 37:29 which reads: The righteous will possess the earth and they will live forever on it.
    So we see from these two passages, that for one, the dead will be raised up and they will live forever on this earth. But God does have some requirements for us to live there.
