Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Roberts family in the loss of your sister Margaret. She was always very pleasant any time I came into the tire store as were all the Roberts men. I firmly believe God's word when it says"Absent from the body, present with the Lord" and I'm sure, knowing Margaret, she is.
Praying for you

I am so sorry to hear of Margaret's passing. She and I shared a strong common bond in that we absolutely adored our grandmothers — Aunt Mary Belle and Mamo Hilbert.
We didn't see each other often the past few years, but I always knew I'd get a big hug and smile from Margaret when we did get to visit. She will always have a very special place in my heart.
Please know that all of your are in my prayers.
