Dick, How very sorry I was to hear of Marge's death. Marge was a good friend. She listened and would always find some pearls of wisdom to share. May Marge enjoy God's light, love and presence.
God bless you at this difficult time.

I will keep my happy memories of Aunt Marge in my heart in the morning, devil dogs or cookies at night...and always a word of wisdom to share. She will be missed, but the happy memories remain to bring to smile each morning with my cup of coffee. ?? Thanks, Aunt Marge!

I have so many wonderful memories of my "cuz", Margie - growing up in NY, all those family dinners and holiday celebrations, a total Elvis fan - I looked up to her so much. She is in God's hands now and may that knowledge be a comfort to all.

She became our "Champion" of advocasy. We know how much you will miss her, as well us and many others, whose lives she influenced.--Stephanie and Bob Ellwood

Dear Dick

You have been in my thoughts and prayers since I received your email. This is a rough time for you (I know from experience). But I also know that while you'll never forget, it does get better as time passes.
