  1. Dear Dan and Deb and your family. God Bless your Mom, Marge, and let the perpetual light shine upon her. Love the picture you chose of her beauty and spirit. What a joyful reunion with your Dad, Joe, and your brother Joey.

  2. Dan, Deb, Tim and families,
    Those we love don’t go away, they walk besides us every day. Unseen, and unheard but always near. Still loved, still missed and with memories we hold very dear.
    It’s not the length of life that counts, but the depth of it.
    Please keep in mind that memory is a special place in our hearts where we can find comfort with the treasured thoughts of those we hold near and dear. Hope it helps you to know that others care and are remembering you and your families with special thoughts and prayers. She will live on it the hearts of everyone who knew and loved her.
    Keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers.

  3. Dan, Deb, Tim and Peggy,

    We were so sadden to hear of Aunt Margie passing, she was a nice lady to me and Keith she always made us feel welcome like a warm blanket wrapped around us, she is up in heaven looking down on us telling us not to cry and grieve she is with her husband again and with her son and we should rejoice in her life but I still will miss her smile and her laughter until we meet again on the other side, love always.

    Keith and Kathy Scally
