Margaret was such a caring person. I got to know her at Bethesda. She helped me get to know the residents and the extras they appreciated. Through the years we would visit about her sons and she always enjoyed showing pictures of her grandchildren. I will miss those conversations and hearing her bubbly voice. RIP my friend!ߘ˜ Laura
