So sorry for your loss. I really loved your mom and dad. Don and I we're their home teachers for many years.
A memory I have was when they got married, they lived in an apartment across from our home. That night about midnight the neighbors got to gather and we all banged on pots and pans and scared the heck out them. We wouldn't quit until they came to the door and waved and told us to go home. What fun that was.
Love to you and your family 💕💕💕💕💕💕

Margaret and Denzel were the best second parents anyone could have. They lived their religion, served others and didn't judge anyone. Margaret was always fun and willing to put up with the antics of teenagers.. So grateful they were a part of my life.
