  4. Maggie was the most beautiful woman I have ever met.
    Inside and out.
    I was her neighbor on Noble Street when I was young and I babysat for the boys. Maggie would tell me stories about having polio when she was a young girl and she would talk about her parents and the love of antiques.
    She taught me how to make fudge but mine was never as good as hers.
    Rest well Maggie. I love you ......
