So many memories of our 57 years of friendship! We shared many laughs and tears together. I used to tell her we were like Laverne and Shirley. I was the crazy one and she always was there to set me straight! She was my best friend, made the best lasagna and iced coffee. Our trips to Grafton always had her iced coffee for us. I thank God we had a chance for one final conversation before she made her transition. Fly high, Margaret. I will never forget all our good times.
