Rick, Sherri, Tom, Marlene and Phil: I was so sorry to hear of Margie’s passing. She was a wonderful mother and sister and a great neighbor! I am so happy I was able to spend some time with her (and Marlene / Bob) last June when I was in Wheeling. I was able to meet some of the grandkids and great grandkids that she took care of. It was good to be able to catch up. Heide and I will keep you in our prayers.
