Condolence & Memory Journal

I read of your loss and want to express my deepest sympathy. During these times it is especially important to draw close to God thru prayer. It is also a time to reflect on the promises that he has given us thru his word the Bible concerning the hope you find comfort in readng these scripture. John 11:11-44, John 5:21,28,29 and Revelation 21:3,4. My prayers are with your family.

We cherish the thought that Margaret is hiking the golden streets of heaven complete in her knowledge of the Savior. We honor a woman who lived in a way to inspire others and pass a legacy of faithfulness to the next generation. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you reflect upon her life.

Condolences to the entire family. My memories of Margaret go back many years. I first met her at New Providence. She was a wonderful Sunday School teacher. Even though I never hiked with her, one of classes or groups I belonged to at New Prov was lucky enough for her to lead us on a walk near Gregory Cave in Cades Cove and I have never forgotten how magical she made it. My son David also remembers her fondly as a Sunday School teacher and the hike he accompanied her on to Mt.LeConte. A special note to Margie: A big hug to you and yours. Lyn
