This is a difficult time for each of you and your families, I pray that you find comfort in your many wonderful memories with Marge. She was a lovely woman and loved all of you dearly. You were all the “apple of her eye” and she relished sharing your adventures with all of us. Know that you are thought of and prayed for at this sad time.

Bill, Jim, and Pat
I know it is hard to lose your Mother, especially a Mom like Aunt Marge. God broke the mold when he made her. I could sit and listen to her talk for hours even as a child growing up. We all have many wonderful memories of her. I am sorry we could not be there with you at this time, but know that you and your families are in our thoughts and prayers.
