I am so saddened to learn of Margaret's passing and of Don's as well. I met them when I first attended a NARFE, at which time they were so kind and welcoming to me, even taking me under their wings. Their dedication to Helen was inspiring. Their hard work, dedication, and warmth will always be remembered. It was indeed a privilege to have known her (and Don). I know the pain of losing my parents, but can't imagine losing both parents so close together. They will be greatly missed. You and your Grandma Helen are in my prayers for strength, comfort, and peace.

Margaret and Don were beautiful people. When I attended a NARFE meeting for the first time, they made me feel welcome, as well as at all other meetings. Margaret and Don displayed the gift of hospitality, which they genuinely shared with everyone they encountered. Their presence will be missed by the many who knew them. May the family find comfort in shared memories as they mourn their passings and remember them always.
Margaret & Don were very special to me & my development as a member of NARFE. When I attended my first NARFE State Convention in 2008 they instantly took me under their wings and made me feel so welcome. My experience with Don & Margaret helped guide me to be an advocate for NARFE & helped me to realize I needed to step up and volunteer for a leader stroll in the Capitol Chapter. It truly hurts to lose 2 such wonderful Friends within a very short time. I will truly miss their Friendship & Guidance. Terry Chism Capitol Chapter NARFE
