Dear cousins. Please accept our deepest sympathy in the loss of Auntie Margaret. I have such great memories of spending time with all of you on the farm in Webster, and when you guys would come to Grandpa and Grandma farm too, I remember going home to visit Mom and she would call Auntie Margaret and they would talk for a long time. It was so great to be able to see her when we had the family reunion at the nursing home with Mom. Thanks Lana for bringing her there, and our wonderful visit. It was so much fun to "catch up" with ALL of the news when we got together in Watertown that afternoon. We need more of that. I have prayed for all of you every night, that you can find peace and comfort in knowing that Auntie Margaret is "home" now with all of those who have gone before. I'll bet that was some reunion! We are sending our love to all of you. I know you will miss her, but you can be relieved to know she doesn't have to struggle any longer. May God bless all of you with peace.

We have so many memories! As young girls, we thought Auntie Margaret and her bridesmaid Eunice were the prettiest young women we'd ever seen with their high heels and short skirts! And we loved the Bobsey Twin books we received for Christmas, knowing that Auntie Margaret enjoyed the fact that we were twins. In fact, she named Marcene! Our families shared good times around the table at Grandpa and Grandpa Tekrony's home, and later years it was a joy to see our moms keep that heritage of love for each other even in their later years. They were always caring sisters! I just recently came across notes in my scrapbook that reminded me that Auntie Margaret attended my college graduation along with Grandpa Tekrony, January, 1964. Knowing that she was the first in our Tekrony family to attend college, that really meant a lot to me. Even though over the years, we haven't been together as often as when we were children, that bond still holds us close. We are blessed to have shared precious memories of your mom and of our Tekrony family, rich with deep roots of abiding faith and love. We pray that as you say your final good-byes, that you will treasure the memories and pass this heritage on to your children and grandchildren. With love and sympathy. Hank and Marlene Brands

Dear Cousins. We want to extend our sympathy to all of you in the loss of your Mother. Auntie Margaret was only one of three Aunties we had, and we have such great memories of all three of them. She and Mom had only each other in their growing up years, and even though they were nine years apart in years, they were close and loved each other deeply. We were all blessed to share them with our grandparents. What good memories we have when we would come to Webster to visit you with Grandpa and Grandma Tekrony. Cherish the memories and rejoice in knowing that your Mom is free of her health issues and joining her family in heaven. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers this week. We are still in Arizona, but we do need to get together this summer. Eddie and Marcene
