I met Margaret thru her daughter, Lisa Tirey, my friend. I remember last summer going over there to their home, and talking to Margaret from the kitchen, while she was watching the Reds play on the big screen TV. I always enjoyed talking with her. I wish I would have known her longer. She was very cordial to me. Glad to have known her. 🙂
