I had the honor of helping your mom around the house. For many years, once a month we would have wonderful talks and many laughs. Marge was such a special lady and one I truly loved. She always had a way of making me feel so welcome and her smile always brightened my day. When I lost my mom she gave me the hug I needed to know things would be okay and talked to me like only a mother can. You are so very blessed to have had as your mom. She was truly and angel on earth as I am sure she is in heaven. I will miss her dearly. You and your families are in my thoughts and prayers.

Robin and Pam, I am so, so sorry. I know you will miss your beautiful mother so much. She was such an amazing, gentle and kind person. I so fondly remember her being here for the Sims Family Christmas just 2 years ago, and she didn't even complain about climbing all of our steps! What an honor to have her here. I am praying for both of you and your families. You are a beautiful legacy.
