Don and family,

I was sorry to hear about Marge's passing.  I had the pleasure of working with both of you at the Civic Center when I would bring FHA members over for a good old square dance - - which you would call Don.  What fond memories I have of those fun parties.  Marge will be greatly missed by all. May God give you strength at this difficult time.   Nancy

May faith sustain you
May hope strengthen you . . .
May God comfort you ...
May the light of God's love lead your way   wherever life takes you.

Sorrow is not forever.  Love is!

May you think lovingly of the past and hopefully of the future. My thoughts and prayers are near you, Don.  May you be granted grace and strength for your every need.
Keep smiling - may you always have a song in your heart.  Back of the clouds the sun is always shining.  God has prepared a rosy-tinted lining.  Back of the clouds it's waiting to shine through.
  Love and Blessings always,

Marge has always been one of my favorite role models.  She always had a big smile and warm embrace for me, even if I hadn't seen her in years.  I will cherish the memories and recipes that she has given me.  God sure has a true GEM in his hands now.  I look forward to seeing her again when I make the journey.  My love to the family.
