    I just heard of Margie’s passing. I am so saddened. She was my lifelong friend, my very best friend throughout our childhood. We stayed in touch our whole lives. I always admired her deep faith in the goodness of God, her devotion to cats and dogs, her strength despite hardship. She loved her family and appreciated being included in activities. She always communicated her deep love and pride in daughter Debbie. I will miss her very much.
