I am thinking of all the family today. I have so many good memories of Marjorie. She was my favorite aunt. I still have the cookbook she gave me when I was a child. She was a strong, intelligent woman and a great role model for her family. God Bless.

This remarkable woman was a true role model and inspiration to me. She showed me how to live life with a purpose, be a vivacious and spirited woman and have a strong sense of self-worth. Her smile could melt your heart. She had a genuine kindness that is very rare in people. Her devotion was felt everywhere; to her husband, her faith, her family and her friends. Her laugh was so infectious that it made you laugh with gladness just to hear it. Her presence was a calm serenity which was soothing, loving and safe. I am honored to know this woman, honored to know her love and honored to be her granddaughter.

What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies. ~Rudolph Giuliani

Our deepest condolences and love.
