    So sad to hear the loss of a very close friend. She was a great friend to many. She was always willing to help when some one would ask. She help sever many of funeral luncheons at her church and many of class reunions banquets. Marge will be missed by many and always remembered for her kind words. Marge is in a better place now with her sole mate forever. God Bless and our prayers go out to all her family’s. See you on the other side. RIP, your work has been completed here in this life!!
