I am sorry to hear of Margaret's passing but, I know this is a blessing as she relied so much on her beloved husband for many years.
I met Margaret/Roy on one of our first camping trips in the 70's. Nelson and I remained close friends with them through camping, our weekly breakfast group, and while wintering in Florida. I will miss them but have good memories of our times together.
