I am so sorry for the passing of Margaret. She was a very special lady. I worked with her at Belks years ago, we always had great conversations. I will miss talking to her on the phone. that I did every Sunday for long time. My prayers and with the familhy.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Margaret was a sweet, wonderful woman, who will be greatly missed. I have known her since I was a child. She always met you with a smile when you entered Parks Belk. Now she is at home with Jesus and her loving husband Roy! They were such a sweet couple; reminded me so much of my parents. Dad and Roy had wonderful conversations in the Barber Shop for many years. He was the only man who would talk with my Dad about the Bible. May God Bless those of you who are left behind!

My sincerest condolences to the family of Ms. Margaret. It is such times like this that we should look to God for comfort. Psalm 34:18 says God "is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." May your reflection on this promise and your many fond memories of her give all of you the strength you need to endure.

I'm so thankful God allowed my path to cross with this very precious lady. I may not have known her very long, but she was truly an inspiration to me and a dear friend. She will be greatly missed. Cosby, Bill and the rest of the family are in my thoughts and prayers.
