Margie and Blaine took care of me when my mom had to work after my dad left us, when my mom had nowhere else to go for daycare. When the stigma of a divorced and single mother was considered to be her fault for failing to succeed in marriage.
Uncle Blaine and the whole family would make me feel like I was the most important person in the world.
They were unbelievably kind to me. Some of my best memories were spent with them.
Rest In Peace Aunt Margie.
