I will miss Aunt Margie. She was a sweet, kind, gentle, funny person who never had a bad word to say about anyone. I have many wonderful memories of her. She will live on in my heart and the hearts of many lives she touched.

Marge as we knew her was a joy to know. She was kind and always with a smile helped us when we were fishing at the Stemec place. I know that she is now in peace with her Lord. Our prayers are with you Louis.
