    Dear Larry and all, It was so neat to see Marge at the graduation party this last spring. I remember when Marge, Nancy, and I found the Lord in the early ’70s. On Tuesdays we would join together with around 25 ladies for a Bible study and prayer and worship, then go to Marge’s home and have tuna sandwiches, and talk. Those are good memories that I’ll never forget. I’m glad that she is now hanging out with good company in heaven. May the Lord bless you with His peace and closeness in the days to come..with love, Ruth

    Dear Larry and family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Margie’s passing. It has been many years since I last saw the two of you. I often remember the times we had with the church we had at your house, the amazing fellowship, the unbelievable amount of coffee we put away, watching you guys go through the growing pains of raising three beautiful girls. Those were very special times. Our confidence is in the one who is able to keep us and never leave or forsake us. Margie is so at peace and probably asking so many questions right now. Jesus is undoubtedly saying, “WOW, I love this gal”. My prayers are with you and though that part of you which made you whole is missing, you will find co mfort in knowing that you will be reunited at God’s appointed time. Still love you all. Alan
