My sincere condolences go to all of the family members. I had the pleasure of taking care of Marge for over 2 years as a caregiver. She was a joy to be around, very loving and caring person. I will always remember our 1-2 hours of grocery shopping , we made it fun. Sure will miss her and her loving spirit! Blessings to her family in this tough time.
