I want to say the world is a little darker without you, but I can only say everything shines a little brighter now with you watching over. I can only hope you knew how much you meant to us. The source of truth, the source of wisdom, and always the source of a smile...and the occasional dirty martini. You are terribly missed already. Love you forever and think of you always.

Yogi- the wind in the wheat is the best. If you can feel it; it is yours. Someday we will talk about this playing chess. Until then..sleep tight.

Aunt Margie, I am so honored to have been your niece. For as long as I can remember I always strived to be just like you. You are one of a kind and our light is now shining dimmer without you. I am who I am today because of you and for that I am eternally grateful. I feel you in my heart and I know that you will continue to guide me and give me strength when I feel weak. Bayleigh and I will miss you always and will continue to keep your memory alive. May you always be the “Dancing Queen” in heaven, until we meet again beautiful I love you with 90% of my heart. Love always, Patti

Aunt Margie, what a wonderful person you are. You always knew what to say ,
your wisdom could make anybody think and smile, I can't ever remember you not smiling. I wish you wasn't as humble as you acted. I'm sure if Johnny and I knew how involved in the FTA you were. I guarantee we would've been involved with your passion to make the trails better. I'll see you later, as you know I never tell anybody goodbye!! I'll see you later.

Love you Jimmy

Margie you left this world way too soon. I'm so grateful we were co-workers and shared our ups and downs over the last 20+ years. I will forever miss our chats and your infectious smile. Keep the disco ball spinning.
