  7. I thouroughly enjoyed caring for Ms. Corbett. She was a precious person and she touched my life in many ways. My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this time.

  8. Margaret Corbett was always an inspiration to me. During the course of our conversations she always spoke of her children, showing her devotion to them as a loving Mother. Even in her illness she was able to speak kind words of others, showing no bitterness regardless of her condition. She will long be remembered.

  9. I never met Mrs. Corbett but I will always cherish the poem she wrote for me on my 55th birthday requested by loving grandaughter CHARLOTTE JOHNSON whom I love very dearly.

She was beautiful, funny, full of wisdom, and love.I pray that one day I can be HALF the woman she was. I love you so much Nanaw and miss you more than I ever thought I could.

  14. Nanaw, we keep waiting on the pain to ease in all of us. We've come to find out, time does NOT heal all pain. You only learn to live with it. I've found as the year has progressed without you, I've missed your smile, encouraging words, and the strength that seemed to ooze out of you. One thing that has helped all of us, is knowing that you LIVE and ABIDE within each one of us. You had a special love and strength that you passed on to each of us. Whether we were blood or not, you still loved all of us and gave us your strength and wisdom. Oh, how grateful we are! But, how badly we miss you now and seems as if we need you more and more as the days go on without you. Surely we'll all be in Heaven together very soon. We miss you so bad Nanaw. We are so thankful that we had the time we had with you. Your NEVER forgotten……until we meet again. we love you so much! nothing will ever be the same without you and the rest of our family.
