Dear Clint and family. I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Clint and Margaret when I worked at IHOP. I was their server many times. We had slot of talks and I have to say that I loved you both from the start. Margaret, even though she was in pain a lot , was the most beautiful and kind and happy woman I have ever met. Clint, you will probably remember me by the many talks we had about VA benefits. I believe the last time I saw you both was Christmas time either 3 or 4 years ago. You two left the restaurant and a while later you came back and Margaret handed me s Christmas present!! It was a beautiful glass angel that lit up with many colors. I love it. I never got to thank her as I left with a work related injury and never returned. Since then I have pondered how to find you two but to no avail. I never stopped thinking about you and wished I could have found you. 2 great people and I have lots of memories from talking with you. Sorry I missed the services. I will always remember Margaret and her great smile and loving personality! I’m so sorry for your loss , it is a great one. I wish I could have located you, I would have loved to see you two again. May God bless you Clint and your family. I would love to see you again. Mary Szantyr ❤️❤️
