    I would like to express my deepest condolences to all of Marge’s family. I was shocked and grieved to learn of her passing. I consider myself blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know her over the past several years. She was a real gem! May the Lord comfort and strengthen you all in the days ahead. May you cherish the memories even in this time of grieving. May you find solace in the confidence we have that she is in heaven today because she was trusting Jesus as her Savior!
