Dear Margie and Stan: My memories of your mom will forever be happy ones! She was absolutely lovely, and like the women of her day, both strong and gentle. She laughed often and easily, and treasured things that mattered. A great life’s lesson. I can still smile hearing both she and my own mom giggling around the kitchen table. Thank you for the smiles and this trip down “Memory Lane”. It was so worth taking! Rest In Peace Aunt Marge. Your light shines on! Much love, Nancy (Zakreski Freeman), John, Christian & John
