    My thoughts and prayers are with my Favorite, Tracy.
    Debby and my sympathy and heartfelt condolences go out to Tracy’s children, siblings and all of Marge’s extended family. Marge was a lovely person to know. She was easy to make smile. She was beautiful inside and out. I am honored to have been assigned a nickname by her that I will always treasure. God got very lucky and we are at a loss. Marge is home with Charles and we should be joyful for her.

    “Look! The tent of God is with mankind,
    and He will reside with them, and they
    will be His people. And He will wipe out
    every tear from their eyes, and death
    will be no more, neither will mourning
    nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The
    former things have passed away.”
    Revelation 21:3,4
