How I will miss our phone chats, and your care to always tell me how much you loved me and Marlin. You kept telling me: " God must have something more for me to do here". Well, Aunt Marguerite, you have finished your work, and I know that you are, this day, in paradise with Uncle Rex and Stan. You will always be remembered as a great blessing to me and my family. Rest in God's peace. Love, Linda and Marlin

Your mom was a fantastic person! What a great sense of humor. Our moms were so funny together when we were growing up. She weathered a lot and came out smiling and joking. I will miss her hugs and teasing. What wonderful memories you must all have of her!
