We were deeply sorry to hear or Aunt Marge’s passing.  There was never a birthday, holiday, or picnic that Aunt Marge wasn’t there bringing food, and an endless stream of conversation.  I remember how loud it used to get when she and the "Aunties", as we called them, used to get talking and laughing in the living room.  She lead a very busy and full life.  Let’s hope that there are bus trips in heaven. We will miss her.
Missy, Brent and Cody Randall
