Dear Marge's familyI celebrate your mom's life. She was one of my favorite aunts and brought spice to the G family. My time in IA was never quite complete unless I saw Beaner's Marge! I will miss her and know you all will miss her too. Praying you will know God's peace and comfort. Lois Beck

Dear Susie and your family, Sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. She had been in my thoughts lately and I was wondering how she was doing. I really enjoyed talking with her the few times I had the pleasure. I know she will be missed but the many fond memories will ease the emptiness of her absence. As ever, Linda
