My dear sweet beautiful friend Margaret, my heart is heavy for the loss of your husband of 61 years. I will never forget how Don welcomed me to Lighthouse Family Church with such a warm smile, open arms and lots of love. How he and I would tease each other. The two of you became family to me very quickly. I will see you soon and please if you need to talk I want you to call at anytime. Love always Ginnie
