  1. Nancy I am so sorry for your loss. I remember seeing you and your mom at the Mexican restaurant about six months ago. She looked incredible and I was so happy for you that you still had your mom. I am glad we hugged when we left. I know the pain you are going through. Please know my thoughts are with you and your family. Love Pat and Barry Garber

  2. So many loving memories of Marge will always remain with us. Comforting prayers for you Nancy and your family.

  3. I am sorry for your loss. God is the source of life and an enemy of death. His Word can really strengthen those who are downhearted. Acts 24:15 gives a beautiful hope of a resurrection for those we have sadly lost in death. We look forward to seeing our loved ones again soon. May God bring you peace and comfort now, and in the days ahead.

  4. I feel so fortunate to have ever met Marge. She was incredibly kind and loving. She truly will be missed. Nancy, our deepest sympathies to you and your family.

  5. I have many fun and happy memories of Marge. For years at bunko and when she would walk the neighborhood in the mornings… always fun and always caring. So happy I was honored to have her as a friend. You and your family are in my prayers.

  6. Nancy
    We are so very sorry to loose such a vibrant awesome woman. I know Janet and your Dad are dancing in Heaven but my heart breaks for you my dear friend.
    A beautiful post we had at our dear friends memorial:
    Your wings were ready, our hearts were not!

  7. Nancy,
    Knowing your Mom was gift. Marge was such a lovely, sweet lady, and we will miss her. Sending love and prayers to you and your family…

  8. What a wonderful and compassionate friend, always smiling. Sometimes I wonder why I landed in Atlanta; then I count treasures like her. Old enough to be my mother, but treated me on the level with respect, wisdom, humor, and excellent conversation. Her vocabulary and perspectives on life, current state of affairs, newest movies, and more always inspired me. After about 15 years of a developing friendship, I so want to be like her – age with grace and a pulse on society. She always had the will to enjoy a day and be healthy. Thank you for enriching our lives, Marge. I will miss you beyond measure. And thank you for saying “I love you” on occasion – something that so many of us don’t do. RIP; see you later! ❤

  9. Marge’s kindness and goodness will always be remembered by all who knew her. I treasured her and considered it a blessing to be among her friends. We will all continue to be inspired by Margie’s loving nature and shining example. Thinking of you, Nancy; you have been the best in your constant vigil and attention to your Mom’s needs. Bless you!

  10. Acts 24:15 gives a wonderful hope of a resurrection for those we have lost in death. May you endure and find peace through our Father, the God of all comfort

  11. To my wonderful sister, Marge. Your in heaven now, with Janet, Earl, Mom and everyone else that you loved (family and friends) that were called before the ,Lord came to take your hand and have you come to live with Him.
    I’ll cherish all of our recent phone calls where we talked about the early years when we were all kids. From your family in California, we love and miss you, Marge. We will meet again. Doug and , Mary
