  1. Margaret, (Sis), and late spouse, Paul, were great, wonderful friends of us in the camping world. Spent many times with them and learned lots from their witty minds. We enjoyed their friendship and love while together, their hearts touched many that may have been strangers once but left as friends. They are now together. May they rest in the peace of Christ, we will meet in the hereafter. We love you, Sis.

  2. Sis and her late husband Paul were people who would welcome anyone into their life. Camping near them gave camping a whole new meaning. They will always be in our hearts and minds and always in our prayers.
