Condolence & Memory Journal

Art and family, I will always remember your mom with a smile on my face. I went to Glen Oak from 1971-1975. She brought to the school such a caring and compassionate attitude. When you think Glen Oak you think Mrs. Borton.

Dear Art & family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother. Margaret was such a favorite of mine and I had her as being ageless.
So many good memories around race weekends when you spent them with the Edlins & Todds. Great parties and Margaret was always up for whatever was going on.
God Bless you all during this time of grieving.
Much love
Liz Todd
