Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sorry to learn of Margaret's passing in May. The Hendrick and Frymire children so enjoyed visiting each other while growing up--the stories they tell sounded like such fun. Dave and Margaret are dear to each of us. They were like Mom and Dad to not only their children, but to the Hendrick children also. Blessings on your whole family.

Margaret will always be remembered by us as such a kind and refined lady. She was a rare jewel; a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother who put others first. We know she will be greatly missed by all. Jim and Judy Smith

Margaret was such a "lady" and so kind to my Mom. I'll always remember how she would pick up my Mom and off they would go to lunch and then wherever the car would take them. I often worried they would get lost, but they always made their way home. I'll bet they are having lunch now.
