Nettie and all the Family........

We have been blessed by the continued correspondences by mail from Marguerite to us (the Karkut sisters) here in California. My mother Antonia Karkut was a fellow Cadet Nurse and career nurse with Marguerite and Ruby. Marguerite would often write or call and share stories from the past and present. She will forever have a special place in our hearts, she was a truly thoughtful and kind person. May the prayers of those who love you carry you through this time of sorrow. With deepest Sympathy, Roxanne & Maddie, Nick and sisters Joyce and Brenda
