I will remember Marge as a strong woman who was very supportive of her family.
I met Marge when she relocated to Charlotte to be able to give Nancy and her family ( David and Richard) the help they needed while dealing with Nancy’s illness.
I will keep Marge and her family in my prayers.

She was a pleasure & I enjoyed the time I spent with her. She was as happy to see me as I was her. I will never forget the day I walked in & she told me that I looked just like my Aunt Birdie. I thought WOW!!!
My grandmother used to tell me that all the time. How does she know I have a Aunt Birdie? Then she preceded to tell me about my grandmothers side of the family! I was blown away. I told this story to the elders of my family who were just as astonished as I was. The information was confirmed by my family but we cannot find anything on paper. She definitely had information that was correct! She knew my family in some way. Since that conversation I would greet her with "Hello, Cousin!" She would smile that sweet smile & her eyes would sparkle. She would always thank me for coming by. I always got a hug from her at the end of the visit. She was proud of her son & thankful for the way he cared for her. She was a true blessing in my life & one of the most amazing individual I ever had the privilege of knowing. it was a true honor to be her nurse. Love you cousin. I will surely miss you. I know heaven has welcomed you home. We will meet again!!!
