Daisies are an appropriate symbol for my Mom on this page. Her name is Marguerite and that is another word for Daisy. I will be planting a whole passel of them in her memory in my garden. Carmen

Carmen, Bill and Family--So sorry for your loss. Aunt Marguerite was always so sweet and had a wonderful smile. Daddy would tell me stories of when they were growing up and he hated that she lived so far away in their adult life. He always looked forward to her visits to Louisiana and we enjoyed seeing them together. We will be remembering your family during this difficult time and the days ahead. Love to all, Marvilyn Byrley Staggs and family (daughter of Marvin Byrley)

The last of our Yaya parents is gone. I'll never forget that sweet smile and her kindness. It has been a joy to watch her extended family surround her with the love she gave out herself. Bye bye, Mrs. Y...I'll always think of you when we eat our black eyed peas on New Years Day. Love, Jeanette
