A ray of sunshine, beautiful warm and bright, Mary Margaret Makin was and is pure, loving, radiant light.
Like a warm island breeze her careful embrace had the power to erase…All the bad and replace with good, a blessing that she received from God that only she and he understood.
Her light has returned to Heaven you see, but she made sure to share a special sparkle  with each and every member of her family     -Aubrey Shiffert
