    We were sad to hear the news that Margaret had passed away.  Margaret had shared a room with our grandmother for several years at Hillsdale.  Our entire family shared many lauphs and jokes with Margaret on our daily visits.  Our grandmother really could not have had a better roomate.  
    We will miss her and be thinking of her.  
    Our family would like to send our sincere condolences to Margaret’s family.
