Al, We are so very sorry for you loss. Margie was always so upbeat about everything, always smiling and looking at things in a positive manner. I enjoyed the time she was outreach leader in our Sunday school class. She did a great job. I know she is in a better place now, is not suffering, and is enjoying the company of Jesus.

Our hearts go out to her husband and family. Did not have the priviledge of knowing Margie but we have been praying for her on the prayer change. She is with our precious Savior now. No more pain or long nights. She will be missed by all that love her.

What a sweet, caring, and wonderful person Margie was (And still is). We have a dish towel and 2 handerkerchiefs she made for us. We know Margie is at peace with our Lord. We are praying for you Al, that in all of the wonderful years of memories God will bring peace and solitude into your days and months ahead. We love you.

Dear Family,
Margie and I worked together at C&S in the late 50's running Proof Machines. We did have such a good time and were good friends. This was before the Army tour in Germany and Vickie's birth, and after their return, I would babysit for you children occasionally through the years. It is with sadness that I heard about Margie's death. Even though I had not seen any of you since Jerry's death, I did think about Margie through the years and wondered where she was living. My sympathies to you all.
