  1. My condolences to you and your family. I will always remember Marge from my volunteer days at the Hart Baseball Canteen. She always had a bright smile and it was a pleasure to work with her!

  2. My Dear Marge:

    I will miss the wonderful conversations we always had at “tax time”. Each year I would learn about waht happened since the last time we talked.

    I also want to express my thanks for all that you did at the Hart baseball complex. Your dedication was incredible.

    Be at peace in God’s hands.
