My deepest sympathies to Margee's family, now and in the days ahead. I played bridge with Margee for many years. She kept us updated on the whole family. Mary, thanks for being our waitress and taking our drink orders while we played bridge. She was a grand lady and will be greatly missed.

The Matzen family sends their deepest condolences. Dad got Dan's message but didn't catch the number to call him back. We have so many great memories of our time together on 16th St. All of the camping trips, the coffee dates between your mom and ours, and all we did in the neighborhood. I know she will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
