Mom, I'll love you and miss you always... Forever in my heart, Nancy
Alice and I want to express our deepest condolences to the family of cousin Marge. She was a wonderful person and all our lives were enriched by knowing her. We are out of town and will be unable to attend her funeral, but she and her family are in our prayers. May her memory be eternal. Fred and Alice Metry
We were so sorry to hear about Margie. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all. It was always so nice to talk with her at Church when we visited. Love to all, Sally
