I am saddened to hear of Marjorie's passing but know she is safe in the arms of Jesus, her Savior. Marjorie has been a wonderful lifelong friend, as she and my mother, Charlotte, were wonderful friends. Gone but not forgotten, and we have the HOPE that we will see eachother again. Marjorie, say hello to my Mom and Dad for me.
