    To the Family: As Christian’s both Marge and Dick were inspirations to us all. Always enjoyed running into them and our “catch up”visits. Marge was a true southern lady, always with a smile. Prayers for you all.

    Such a sweet lady and a good next door neighbor. I remember all of you children with some good memories. Your dad was a good neighbor too, especially when Tennessee played Auburn. Good memories. Love to all.

    One of my fondest memories of Ms Marge is the first time I spent the night with Linda. She asked me if I would like a bottle of “pop” and I had no idea what that was! She graciously stated she meant to say “a coke”. So loved Ms Marge!

    Sending hugs and prayers from GA to you, Linda, and Cheryl and Barb.

    We are sorry to learn of Marge’s death. She was such a kind lady, and we were so appreciative of the thoughtfulness shown us those years at ARP. She and Dick were special friends for many years. We have you all in our thoughts and prayers in the days ahead. We send our love.
