Marjo shared with us, her family, a lifetime of love, kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity. She knew how to enjoy, celebrate and have fun with all of us. And when the need arose she always was there to support, encourage and assist each of us. Her absence now creates such a void in our lives, but the person she was will be forever present in our lives. We love you, Marjo!
