Margie, you were my friend and my right hand. I remember so clearly the time when we met when the boys were two and in the CDRC. I was looking for a new administrative assistant and my neighbor, Gerry Sears, said that I had the best person possible already in the center and it was you. She was right. Not only were you the glue that held us all together, but you were the light and warmth as well. I will always remember you as one of my dearest friends and I will miss you dearly. I know that heaven is a brighter place with you there. Love Cathy

Marjie, thank you for being there for me and my family. You helped make it possible for me to get to where I am today. You were always so supportive of all of all of your student assistants. You helped all of us in one way or another. I hope you knew how much we loved you and how many lives you affected and blessed. You were an Angel here on Earth to me and so many others. Now you are an Angel up in Heaven. Love you, Marjie!!!
