My husband and I would like to express our sincere condolences to the family and friends of your beloved Marjorie. The grief felt at times like this may seem unbearable, we have gone to the comfort of God's Word, for he too feels our pain when someone we love dies. (Psalm 34:18) May you also draw comfort in the wonderful memories you all made and shared together-cherish them in your hearts always.

Marge was one of my favorite people. I was so enriched to have her in my life for the past 35 yeras. I remember her sayings well. She would say "Don't ever get married to your first job" and "Oh what a tangled web we weave if first we practice to deceive". I'll never forget these words of wisdom. I know she's in a better place with her Lord and of course her "Leon".
