Richard and Rhonda I just want you to know how sorry I am for your loss. We all loved Marge so much and I will truly miss my dearest friend of over 45 years. Marge and I had so many wonderful conversations, memories of the saddle club and camping with you both. You were wonderful friends to Tracey and I and gave us many good memories and great times together with all of us. One real memory I hold onto is that Marge and I never ended a phone call without saying I love you and I will keep that love dear to my heart forever. God Bless You All will love and sympathy. My Love Pat
