    I am so sorry about the loss of Maggie. I am not up on my stack of newspapers and I had no idea that she had died. I am so sorry that I wasn’t there in person to extended my sympathy to the family. Maggie was such a sweet, giving lady and we all have benefited from knowing her. She took such good care of our children for so many years and we are so happy that she was there! Thanks, Maggie! How your family must have been blessed by this great lady! Thanks for sharing her with all of us. Susie Plunkitt
