I just wanted to say how sorry I was to hear of Mrs. Sternberger's passing. I was one of her home health therapists. She was so motivated and I admired how she faced any obstacle or illness bravely and always wanted more and more therapy to keep herself strong. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

My favorite memories of "Aunt Margaret" (as I call her) date back to 1996. I was getting ready to marry my wife, Barbara McDanell, who went to church with Aunt Margaret. We had a $200.00 budget to begin our life as Mr. And Mrs. Spike James. Being the kind of person she was, she hosted a bridal shower for us which gave us a jump start on life. I have never forgotten this kindness, and my love for her has grown over the past 50 years, because she always made me feel as part of her family. She will be missed by all of us. Spike James
