Dear Bob and Family,
Sheryl and I are so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved wife Marjorie. We will be thinking of you and your family especially in the coming days as you grieve her loss. We will be forever grateful to you for taking me down for my cancer treatments to the Tampa VA even though it must have brought back sad memories of your experiences with your son Bobby. Wish we lived closer to attend Marjorie's Memorial and to give you a hug and express or care and concern. We will be making a donation to the Barber Fund in memory Marjory as you requested. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Sincerely,
Dan and Sheryl Jensen

Charley was so much fun to be with on our day -trips to Epcot and Disney World over the years.
She was so full of life, so funny, and so much fun to be with.
I am sad today, but so grateful that we had those fun days and I will always remember her as a gem of a person and a lovely lady.
My sympathies to all her friends, families and her furry ones.

Margie brought Joy and fun memories to many of the children in Sleepy Harbour over the years, helping Santa make his Christmas rounds.

Margie and Santa made a special effort, and drove the sleigh so Santa could to visit the families in their own homes. The children read their wish lists to Santa, enjoyed candy canes, and the families took pictures. It was a great evening. In other years the fun moved to a daytime visit with Santa at the lakefront lot with sweets and crafts etc.

It was always fun, and Margie was always there for the kids. The children loved the Magic of their special visits for many years, and we'll always remember Margie for her kindness.

Condolences to Bob and the Family
