Dear Marg, I have been thinking about you - a lot, now immersed in the beautiful peace and freedom of your new Home.Thank-you so much for your kindness and care for the young woman new to the valley all those years ago -and the years that followed. You heard me tell you before, but I tell you again, your floating gardenias in the blue china bowl... placed in the guest room on that first visit, was one of the most beautiful gifts I have ever received. There are now three full, deep green gardenia bushes on each side of the entry to our home, that are budding and just waiting to bloom. They are definitely there , and always will be, because of you. What joy they bring! (your great-grandsons have also discovered them!) Thank-you, dear Marg. God bless you. Love, Nancy

Virginia, John and Todd, Our family's prayers are with you at your time of loss. Our mother Marylou (McPhaill, Gates- Fox) and your mother we great friends. Our mother shared many memories of the things they did in high school and all of the fun they had. Your mother was a big part of our moms early life in Visalia. As Nancy shared above, I also remember the gardenias floating in glass bowls and taking the gardenia's (in waxed paper neatly closed at the top with a straight pin) to our teachers. Thinking of you, Debbie, Rusty and Charlotte (Eckmeyer) Gates.

God hath not promised Skies always blue, Flower-strewn pathways All our lives through: God hath not promised Sun without rain, Joy without sorrow Peace without pain. But god hath promised Strength for the day, Rest for the labor Light for the way, Grace for the trials, Help from above, Unfailing sympathy Undying love. . . .
