3 Condolences to Margaret Fravel Wilkins

    Bob, Karen, KM and Gail and families,
    You know how much I loved Aunt Margaret. I have so many memories of her, baking cookies at Christmas time, her help at my wedding, stopping by to see her at the telephone company before having lunch with Uncle John, visiting with her at the farm and in recent years at the nursing home. On one of our visits with her, Adam and Matthew sang “Jesus Loves Me” to her and she mouthed the words to the song as they sang. That will remain one of my cherished memories of her. On Sunday, when she left us, she joined so many that she loved and who loved her in a glorious reunion. Now she is home.

    Bob & KM
    Your mother has been a dear friend as well as a sister in law to me for 65 years. We shared many of the most important events of our lives together. I will treasure my memories of her and your father always.
    Aunt Caroline
