Though I did not know Marjorie very well or for very long, from the first time I met her, I sensed that she was a insightful and graceful lady. Must have been that artistic soul! I can almost imagine Marjorie now tending heaven's gardens! I am truly sorry for your family's loss and pray that your beautiful memories help to ease your sorrow.
(I met Marjorie while visiting my family member who resides at CG.)
