    To this lady… that has always treated me as her own, I will never forget you. I do find comfort in the fact that you devoted so much of your life to our Lord Jesus Christ and tried your best to never fail that. You certainly must be having one heck of a reunion with all of our family that awaits you. I can’t begin to say how much I will miss you. I’ll always love you. God Bless you Margie.
