One of my favorite memories of Aunt Marge ( I have a lot) is how she would wrap your gift in the newspaper comic section. I thought that was so clever and fun. She always sent a card with a personal picture that she took herself. And how proud we were when we would go see her pictures on display at the State Fair. But I will miss her signature good bye the most "you know what Scarlet said, worry about it another day, stay safe and I love you". She was an amazing woman and I will miss her. I love you too Aunt Marge.
