To my cousins, Larry, Barry, Wayne, Greg and Dolly...so very sorry I couldn't be there with you at the funeral. She was such a beautiful lady as we can all see from the family pictures. A calmer person I have never known. So pleasant and funny too! Absolutely loved all the photos! Enjoyed the "vintage" Christmas ones. And the Christmas at my parents house brings back memories of our families getting together for laughs, treats, and drinks! I can hear all the voices from the past right now. Great memories that we share with each other. We always had loads of fun at camp too! Wonderful times with our families that I appreciate and will never forget! Join the Christmas party this year in heaven,Margie! They have been waiting for you! Love, Diana
