  1. My fondest memories of Maggie are: Her welcoming and consistent love for all of her family; and her devotion and love to Dad. (I can reflect in my mind and see her and Dad walking arm in arm together laughing and singing. Now they are together again laughing, singing, and probably dancing too)! Maggie had a tremendous sense of humor and was friendly to everyone she knew and to anyone she had simply just met. She was a friend to humanity. I remember her as an avid Johnny Cash fan and Larry Bird fan too. I remember listening to her debate about politics and politicians! She was so much fun to be around. My spirit and soul have gained joy and wisdom because Maggie has permanently touched my life…Thank you, Maggie. I love you, Sue

  2. Maggie was a Teacher of Life. We may never see her likes again. Bon Voyage Maggie. We love you, always, Ken & Kim

  3. I had only met Maggie a handful of times but I will always remember her as the fun-loving, hip-dancing, smooth-talking, sports fan that she prided herself to be. I know my Dad will miss her terribly, but I am glad (and know he is too) that she is once again partnered with the love of her life, Ken Young, sr. We will miss you Maggie. Love, Jen

  4. Dear Maggie, I just want you to know how much we love and miss you. You were a wonderful Mother to all of your children. I know that you and Dad must be very happy together now and that makes us all feel very good inside. Keep dancing together and we love you both very much. Looking forward to meeting you both in Heaven someday. Love, Marc & Carol & Family

  5. Sorrow on the loss of your Ma Ma. Maggie was good to us and will be remembered. Respecfully, Monica and John

  6. Dearest Judy and Dennis – I will be praying for you in your loss-you will miss Maggie a lot but one day we will all meet again in heaven! Best wishes to all the family. Love, Nancy
