Margie and I became instant best friends upon meeting in 1957.
We were like sisters and loved one another deeply. I'm in
Brooklyn, NY, she was in Indiana, but our friendship never
wavered. I will miss our phone conversations dreadfully, and I
cannot believe I now live in a world without Marge in it.
