None of us are perfect, but Margie was the best! Margie was the best calmer, comforter and voice of reason. She was the best cousin! She was the best crafter, with talent and imagination, beyond us all. Margie was the best story teller! She gave Mark Twain a run for his money! And Margie had the best laugh! Sending love and prayers to her sweet Ernie, who fostered/supported her creativity and let her shine!
