  1. I didn’t know you at Kodak; but I know one thing you had a big mouth and insulted me on the women’s locker room embarrassing me and you got in trouble for that incident. I however came to know that you were a happy go lucky sort of person and you didn’t really mean to harm at least I don’t think you did. You are happy with the lord now. I hope you can rest in peace

  2. Margie was one of the happiest, down to earth, people I have ever met. Her laugh was contagious. I saw her last at our 50th high school reunion, and she had me in stitches the whole evening. The world will miss her.
