    We met Margaret through Uncle Billy and Aunt Anne Mason. We fell in love with her from the first day. Whenever me made trips to Wilmington we enjoyed the many great dishes she prepared for us. What a wonderful lady.

    Margaret Green was a lady of sweetness & kindness and a big HEART for Missions! I loved her so!! She attended my church & we were in a Women's On Missions group for approx 20 years. She would share stories about missionaries and knew the scripture well! You could see her light shine so brightly along with a caring heart for all who were blessed to be in her presence! I will miss Margaret and never forget on one of our mission trips going up some steps and she was much older than me...passing me as we walked and climbed! I had to push thru that last moment to beat one step ahead of her but it was hard! I remember thinking she truly does take care of her temple from our Lord and gave all she had to help others understand the importance of it! Love you Margaret!!! Until we meet again!!
