Our friend, Margaret Sparks died Friday. Margaret had been fighting cancer for some time, but things like this always hit home when they happen.
Margaret was a neighbor of M-in-L, and she was our neighbor when we lived at our home in Cadillac, from 1973 until we moved in 1990. She was a lady, a good neighbor, and a member of the church M-in-L attends, Meauwataka Free Methodist. For many years, a hug from Margaret accompanied our trips to the church, mostly on holiday weekends when we did not have to hurry home on Sunday morning. Margaret, M-in-L and I even worked at the same place for several years, a shop which made seat covers for Oldsmobiles.
Margaret always enjoyed seeing the children, but especially on Halloween. She greeted them with a big smile, and I believe D2 even took GS3 to Margaret’s home one year when she lived in the area. I am going to miss seeing her on our visits “up north”, and I know many other people will feel a void in their lives.
