I didn't know Marge for very long (I met her during the Ms. Texas Senior America Pageant), but I immediately recognized what a lovely, kind and giving lady she was; and I wish I had gotten to know her better. "Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear." You will always be in the hearts of many.
