Margot is my sunshine. I have lost my sunshine. She was so funny. She was kind and loving. She treasured her family and friends and above all else she loved her son Carson. She found her perfect mate in Nick Johnston, the love of her life. Margot we all miss you.

Margot was such a sweet and wonderful person. Although we only knew her for a short time, she left an impact with her generosity and love for the ones around her, especially to my niece Alyssa Doisey. Sometimes life is not fair and this is most definitely one of those times. Prayers for her family!

Margot and my grandson Aron were both toddlers when I 1st met her. My grandson couldn’t pronounce Margot instead he said “Mygoat”. Margot was very upset and said “I’m not a goat.” She was a joy then and grew into a beautiful woman. My prayers and love to her family, I know she is greatly missed.
