Marge was so much fun and always made me feel as if were her friend. The hours I was able to spend with her as I cleaned were always engaging, encouraging and she offered so much wisdom, but only when asked. I was always offered lunch and later on in the day a Manhatten, which I surprising liked. She adored her family and was so proud of their accomplishments. She was very magnanamous and inclusive, I always felt love in her presence. I thank her for giving me Mary,the best friend that we all hope for. You will truly be missed and never forgotten.
