I'm so sorry for your loss. I am going to miss Aunt Margaret too. I didn't get to meet her til I was older. One year Uncle Si decided it was High time I went to a Rice Reunion. I didn't know very many people there. LoL except that 99.9% of the people there were related to me, and like me they didn't know who I was except my Gramma and A select few Aunts and Uncles. That is when I 1st met Aunt Margaret. Oh what a Wonderful Woman. I was blessed to get to meet her. I had met Aunt Lois and I knew Uncle Si. Had met Our Crazy Uncle Ed. Knew Aunt Beth and Donna and Aunt Sharon. But here she was Aunt Margaret finally. LoL oh and Aunt Franny too. I had seen Aunt Fran once or twice before didnt really know her but that was all fixed after my 1st Rice Reunion. Aunt Margarets 1st words to me were OMG You look just like My Sister Barb. Hahahaha. I said oh? She says who do you belong to? I answered with the usual Jan McIntosh and Vicky (Dowling). She said Oh My I knew it Your Janice. U are your Grandmothers twin. Well When ur in your 20's you don't really think of that being a compliment... But now that I'm in my 40's and Aunt Margaret never missed a chance to tell me I looked just like my Grandma Barb I do. My Gramma Mac was as Beautiful at 16 as she was at 85. I hope I look half as good as she did. Aunt Margaret never forgot who I was even after her Memory got bad. She was a Remarkable Woman. A woman Of strength, courage, and Love. I'm going to miss You Aunt Maggie. Give my Gram hugs from me.

Grandma Mac was my adopted grandma. She introduced my mom (Rachael) and stepdad (Wes) who are still in love and together today. She treated us like her grandkids. Five years ago I took a trip to NY for my daughter Elloria to meet her and I am so thankful I did. Elloria may not remember it but I remember her holding e's hand and walking her into the kitchen to dish up strawberry shortcake for my dad. I remember her having e carry the plate to her Gramps and Grandma Mac smiling with love. I remember her telling e stories about me learning to can and crochet and color at their house. She taught me to can and crochet. We watched wrestling and ate so many snacks. She sent precious letters when K and I married and e was born. I got the chance to tell her how much I loved her and all she did for me. I am so thankful. Some of my fondest memories are in her house and back yard. Running through her garden and the cornfield next door. We spent Christmas Eve at her house every year growing up because it was her birthday. I remember being so excited to make and decorate a cake for her. I remember her piano and learning to play Doe A Dear...the only song I can still play and taught e. My heart is sad but it is full. I am so thankful for the memories and love. I hope she feels me thanking her up in heaven for all she did for me. I love you Grandma Mac rest in piece.

I am so sorry for your loss. Its hard losing a Mom. Aunt Margaret always had a smile. I remember when we were small she always wanted us to eat. A beautiful, kind, special lady. Keeping each of you in my thoughts and prayers.
