Too many memories to pick just one Aunt Marge was my first city person. She was so beautiful and talked like New York City, which I didn't know at the time . Remember that red hair and fiery personality so alive and fun. We were country people only knew cows and countryside. She introduced us to some of the city ways. She always made me feel important cause she took the time to pay attention to a kid and all her animals ;and she acted like I was telling important things. Then she married my Uncle Neil and she looked like a princess and she married my Uncle Neil my prince in a Marine Uniform. Through the years she was always so loving . So I say fly away to heaven Aunt Marge and join your Prince and Sing to Jesus
