Marg, my sistah!
You know I have such found/crazy memories of
Christmas Eve with your Mom. We had this special connection. You know how "those artsy" types are.
Today the service was beautiful. I felt it all the way here in New York, a city Big Marg loved so much. Then I felt this weird vibe, like the service was dragging on. I got a text from someone named "Angel" hmmm So I read it and it said. "Hey, there's this new naturally blonde girl, 29 years old from New Orleans/Covington. She's in this beautiful mink coat. The weather is perfect here! IT'S HEAVEN!!! So why the MINK COAT? And just so you know, suddenly there is a lot of champagne missing. hmmmm"
xoxoxo,
Angel

I know she was your heart. You were the best daughter a mother could have, well, yes, the BEST daughter. You did good, kid.
It's so hard when you lose someone you love so much, especially when they are so young, in their 20's.

A toast to Big Marg, martinis, champaign, grand pianos and yes, "artsy types"!
all my love,
your brutha,
Doug
