    Marge was such a kind and talented woman. She did my flowers and decorating for my wedding back in 95. Everything was perfect. Prayers for her family.

    I too remember a tender voice with a lovely smile dating so many years back to Montrose Elementary, more than 60 years ago. How blessed you were to have your mother filling your hearts with memories for so many years. My sympathy to you Sharon, and to your family.
