My husband John is in Adult Day Care at the Church of the Brethren in Carlisle,
and I met Margaret there. She was very kind to John, always had a smile for him and a pleasant word. We will both miss her.
I cannot begin to share my thoughts
& feelings on my dear Margaret! She brought such joy & life to the Adult Day in Carlisle when I was coordinator for
5 years. I shall miss her smile, her cute sense of humor but most of all her love of the Lord. Praise our Lord that she is
at peace!! Love to her family!
