  1. Kids, you all know how much I loved your mom, so to know she’s not around any more breaks my heart. But feeling sorry for my loss is selfish because she is in Heaven with her Lord, in no pain, jumping and running , walking and hugging!! All she’s wanted for the past year.
    Our memories will help us as we mourn. Knowing Margie is celebrating with Eleanor and Homer gives us Joy. Knowing that her kids, Randy, Penny, Cynthia, Cory, are Christians due to her faithful prayers and attending Church faithfully. When the church was open, Marge was there.
    I love you guys and will pray for you everyday.
