I remember visiting Aunt Marge & Uncle Harold when I was growing up - there was always have a card game going. It was always a joyful home. As I grew older, I treasured visits with Aunt Marge, who always seemed to have a secret to share about aging gracefully - from walking the mall daily, to baby oil, to part of a teaspoon of cinnamon, to drinking water, and eating dark chocolate. She described herself as a tough old broad. She had a heart of gold, a kind word to... and about... everyone she met, and always a little plastic bag of snacks and sweets for our journey home. Heaven is a brighter place today with our beloved Aunt Marge. Lava lava.
