Faye (Baird, West) and I are so sorry we will not be able to attend the services for Mag. Faye was in the hospital a couple weeks ago and with all the restrictions now, we just feel it would not be safe for us. We both love Mag and was always so glad to see her. Our thoughts and our prayers are with all of you and we love you all.
