To Aunt Maggie's Family: I send thoughts of sympathy and support to you as you begin your journey without your mother. I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to be a part of our lives. Their love leaves an unforgettable imprint in our memories. I hope you find comfort in knowing that your lives have been blessed by having shared her love. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Sandy Selzler Voigt

To the family of Maggie Scott, sorry to hear of your mother's passing. May your memories of your mother be a source of comfort to all of you. Your mother lead a full life and never lacking for excitement, especially with the 3 younger boys! I have heard stories from my younger brothers of some of their adventures they shared with Randy when younger---midnite swims at Hitchcock was one. I am sure she will be watching over you all, just as she did before. Love and Prayers from all the Tobins.
