I only knew Margaret through working out at Curves in Creedmoor, She was such an endearing person and made such an impression on me. I always looked forward to seeing her walk through the door. She was a very sweet person, indeed, one of those fine ladies you never forget! My deepest sympathy and condolences to her family in the loss of your loved one.

The Wheelous family is like my second family to me with Margaret being the matriarch. I will miss knowing she is close by when I go home. She was so beautiful inside and out, so caring and angelic. The world will be a little more somber without this special, kind, lovely woman who always greeted me with a genuine hug and smile. She and her family are wonderful people who love one another sincerely having started with Charlie and Margaret's love for one another which will live on forever through their children and grandchildren. What a beautiful legacy Margaret has helped to leave. God bless the Wheelous' family, my dear Charlie, Charlie Brown and all the girls and grandchildren left behind. I pray for all of you to have some comfort from your pain at this sad time and throughout the coming days... With love and much sorrow, Vickie G. and family
