    So sorry to hear of the loss of you Mother. Mothers are very special and will always have a Special Place in your heart. Hold onto all the memories and know that you will always have an Angel above.

    With Sympathy for You and the Family,

    I know that your entire family will miss Marge, as Rob and I will also. She was a very special friend to us. She was both classy and fun, and we were so happy for her and Al when they both got a second chance at love so late in life. May God Bless your family and may you keep Marge in your hearts forever.

    I saw the most breathtaking pink sunset in Arizona a few nights ago with a brilliant pink streak pointing straight up to heaven. I have never seen such a mesmerizing sky and my immediate thought was that Marge was saying good-bye to me. I watched it until the sky turned gray and then I knew that Marge was now where she belonged; gone from this earth, but never forgotten. With deepest sympathy, Martha and Rob Poage
