Huntsville, AL

I played bridge with Margaret in Huntsville for many years. She overheard another bridge player, Dolores Vance, who was discussing a recent hand at a nearby shop, she introduced herself, and they discovered their husbands had a distant relationship. It was a true Southern conversation, and both Vances did become partners. Margaret was funny and held astute opinions. I am so sad this terrible disease took her.
