My condolences to all of the family. I have very fond memories of Mrs. Lasky - all the way back to 1962 when Rachelle and I became friends in the second grade. May she rest in peace.

Margie was so sweet and my mom (Helen Bors) loved her dearly. Every once in a while I would bump into Margie at a restaurant and it was so nice to see her. I am so sorry for your loss and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. God's blessings to all of her family. Love you all, Mary Lou Bors
