  7. Margaret Stratton was a wonderful person. She was beautiful on the outside, but especially on the inside. Her thoughtfulness was always evident in the positive way that she treated all persons, no matter their race, religion, nationality, ethnic group, sex, or LGBT. Margaret was also an incredible humanitarian who always worked to improve all the world’s peoples. Diane and I will always picture Margaret at the Pearly Gates helping the Lord welcoming the good people into Heaven.
