Dear Mike and Kathy, we are so saddened you Mother and my aunt has passed away. She is now with her beloved Don at her final place in Heaven. I have fond memories of Aunt Margie when I was a child and Mom and Dad really loved their little sister. Her life will never be forgotten.

We are so sad to hear about Marge. She was so special to our Mom, Kitty Milford who we laid to rest on Saturday, and I know they are now together again. She took great and special care of our Mom while she was at Claire Bridge, and we enjoyed our time with Marge. Love and prayers to the family, Sue, Carol and Mindy, Amanda
