    Marjorie will be sorely missed but she gave us many great memories camping and other family shared life events that would not have been as memorable without her. All our best thoughts and prayers to the family at this time.

    My condolences to the Stanton family. May the “God of all comfort” bring you comfort at this time (2 Corinthians 1:3 & 4).
