    I met her at my brothers funeral. She had worked with Paul at the currier. She didn’t know that her brother Paul was marrying her cousin, Barbara I had met her at the wedding. She was always friendly. once in a while I would bump into. Her in different places. But Barbara would talk about her at time. I will miss hearing about her.

    I am so sorry to see in the paper this morning that Marge passed away. I don’t know if you remember me but I shared a room in the hospital with her and met Brian and two nieces. I know we didn’t know each other very long but she was the best roommate you could ask for in the hospital. She was a lovely lady who I will never forget. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. p

    I would bump into Margie's family most times I went to LGH or D'Youville Manor to visit. We talked about how blessed she was to have her sister Pat's children around her. She loved being with them for breakfasts, dinners and family gatherings. The last day I was with her, was right after she left D'Youville to return to her apt.--she liked being home. She was getting the hang of using her phone & called 911 by accident. I waited for the police to home and let them in to see she was okay. We had a good laugh! I have know Marge all my life since she was my mother's childhood friends. We will miss you!
