I have so many wonderful memories growing up next to Margie and Robert during my early childhood. When their granddaughter, Jennifer Sharp, would visit we would play at Margie's and laugh the entire time! I vividly remember Margie allowing us to drink strawberry milk out of baby bottles when we were way too old to be drinking out of bottles:)
I'm so sorry for your loss, she was a very special neighbor and grandmother.

Margie had a knack for making you feel special either by telling you how pretty you were or just with one of her hugs and genuine inquiry in how you were doing. She adored her family more than anyone I have seen before or since. She also beautified her world with all the bulbs she planted that are too many for me to count. I am sure heaven will be a prettier place with her there planting flowers.

I had asked Mom about Margie just a few weeks ago when I was home...I was planning to visit her. So sorry I didn't get another visit with her. A lovely lady whom I will always have precious memories.
