I had the absolute pleasure of working with Marjorie as the activities coordinator at Brookdale. When i arrived she always made me feel as if i belonged and was an inspiration to everyone. There will be a hole in my heart to know she is gone. But the fond memories will keep her alive in all i do. I will miss you Grams you were amazing.
