    I just learned of Margaret’s passing and am saddened the family must grieve so soon after the loss of John, her beloved husband and family patriarch. I have much to be thankful for in knowing your Mom and consider her influence on my own life a remarkable achievement of trust by her. Thanks Richard for allowing me to know your Mom better and for allowing me to make the decisions I did in following her in Federal service. Her generosity will never be forgotten.
