Gloria and John Hog:

You parents were very special people to me. I still have Margie's Christmas ornament that goes on the tree first thing each year, and I still miss your Dad.

Best regards to you and the family.

I had the honor of being a person that Ms Marjorie has known for many full moons. Bless Marjorie. I do know that she raised a hell of a daughter and son who has brought many smiles and laughter to our life's in the long years I've known her! This reflects all the love she was given to her mother. Now she will be remembered forever through great memories and future ones to come of her children/grand children! We are so sorry for your loss. Love you all! Condolences to the family. Ms. Marjorie is and will always be someone special to me and families in Cocoa . She was a kind-hearted, strong and funny, women. Words can't express how much we will miss her.I bet your dad will be meeting her at the gate. LOL She is with him now and raising the dickens with him for leaving her. God, we will miss them.

so sorry to learn of majorie's passing I knew her i high school and rainbow girls and then for yrs we had no contact but later were reunited at MB's and enjoyed a wonderful friendship from then on When she was able to use the computer she kept me updated on news in Cocoa which I loved I have not seen her in a couple of yrs but the girls we always went to luch with when I came to MB's keep me updated on her. She will be missed. I cannot be at the service but I will wear purple Friday in her memory my thoughts and prayers will be with family and friends. I will donate to the humane society as I too am an animal lover. RIP Majorie you are free from pain and being dizzy

Our Deepest Sympathies go out to Marjorie's family. We have known Margie since we were kids in school and our love for each other grew from that experience. She will be missed but know she is in a far better place with God her Father.

We will be unable to attend, but will be thinking of you all. She was a favorite of mine, many late night joke sessions long before Facebook. She was a treasure, I loved her.
