I just heard of Marge's passing and wanted to send my thoughts to her family and friends. She was a lovely woman and such a pleasure to have known. I worked with her at Hills Department Store. Her influence on my life was incredible and I was blessed to have her in my life. My new goal in life is to keep smiling like Marge did and keep the sunshine going just like she did.

Dearest Margie,May you be at peace on this day, knowing the amazing love from your family, friends, and people you knew for just awhile. You were a joy to know for a short time. Your beauty and happiness I will always remember. Laura's love for you was how I first knew you before I actually met you, and that is a blessing in of itself. Laura's adventures with you were always fascinating, just like a mother and daughter should be. You both had tremendous times together. When I finally met you at Daniel's party, you were a joy to talk with and have fun conversations with...just like a loving mom would with me. I will never forget the loving words you shared with me in private that night. You gave me great advice and loving comments to live by...hope I can live up to your expectations. Your loving, motherly way will be missed dearly by me and many, many others. May God hold you near him, caress your pains, and keep you happy in heaven. I wish we had more time together but God had other plans. My thoughts for your happiness and peace give me solace that you will no longer feel any pain. I believe now you will be in a more serene place...smiling everyday.With loving and caring thoughts on this day for you,Gretchen Marie Gal

My lovely Jacquelina and family,There are no words to accurately honor a lady so pure of heart and as beautiful on the inside as on the outside--but to know Miss Margie is truly a blessing for which I am eternally grateful. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.With much love,Heather O'Leary
