Uncle Roy & family,
I was very saddened to see that Aunt "Marge" had passed away. She and my mother sure had some great times together. I remember her sense of humor and how she had a great way of knocking me off my high horse when I had it coming. She will be missed. God bless her and all of you.

PS: I'm sorry but I am unable to attend the funeral or calling hours since I will be away on a long-ago planned vacation to Italy.
