    I want to take this opportunity to offer my love and concern to the Whittington family and the love ones who shared their joy and love with Mrs. Margaret. When I Think of Mrs. Margaret, I think of good times. I can recall a time way back when one day she saw me doing something I should not have been doing. She said, Vic, I know Ms. Sally don’t where –you- at-boy. She would tell on me too. I remember the Mrs. Margaret well. I thank her for her wisdom. I want the Family to know that my love is with you always and there is no higher power than God. I want to share with you a many thanks as we look toward heaven thanking God for shining down on all of us with the blessing of his love. Look at what he can do. He can end suffering, something nobody can do. He can turn our worst days into our best. He can and he will send us to a place where there is no more sorrow. We will all have a reunion that will be the paramount of ever being born. I love you and may God hold your hand from this day forth.
