I am Phyllis Drussel Tillman, daughter of Raymond and Bessie Drussel......cousin of Margaret and her family. We grew up on the farm south of Garden City -- just a couple miles apart. Until the recent year or so, I looked forward to exchanging Christmas notes with Margaret, my only connection with the family as we all got older. She was special to me as I grew up an only child and I'm sure she will be missed by many. God bless you all.
