Margie was the cousin I always looked up to as a child in awe of her world that seemed so exciting to me. Although I moved away from the family that was the center of my life as a child, she stayed in touch with me to keep me posted on her life and the happenings of our extended family. You left us too soon, Margie and my heart goes out to your children, brothers and grandchildren.
