    So sorry to hear about Marge. I’m her cousin on her mother’s side, and though we met infrequently, she was always so nice with a good sense of humor. Peace be with you.

    Joni and I have known you for 75 years, from the days of Edward Rosewater School, South High School, and the many years that follow raising kids and then growing older. We were those silly sisters chumming around with this brilliant student with common sense and heaps of intelligence. Your families were so fortunate to have achieved your treasured abilities, thoughts, actions, and family love. PEACE BE WITH YOU AS YOU JOURNEY ON TO BRING MORE RADIANCE TO HEAVEN. Condolences to the family. Bobbie and Joni Kucera, Rigatuso, Hinkle
