Mr. Williams

We were very sorry to hear about the death of Marge. Our deepest sympathy is with you and the family. I remember one of you telling the story about when you moved to Conway. Marge said she couldn't live in a small town. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Class of '61, Conway, MO

Rick and Denise; So sorry to hear about Marge passing away. I have good memories of her. I remember when she use to come over on Saturday morning and was part of the "coffee group" with my mom, Blanch Throckmorton, Nadine Hoover and several others. When I was in high school I had my appendix removed and she sent me a series of get well cards that were enjoyable to read. She also came to visit me.

God Bless you and your family.

Glenn and family! Though I only new you both for a short time, my uncle Wayne and aunt Marie Young thinks the world of you both! Every time I saw Marge, she greeted me with a big Hug. I know God has blessed her here on earth and will multiply them in Heaven! She will be greatly Missed.
With Love and Prayers

Dear Glenn, I have so many fond memories of Marge when we lived on Highway 43 and her folks had the store just south of us. We use to visit in the Tucker home. I know you will miss Marge. I have found this poem very comforting.
When God sends forth a spotless soul
To learn the ways of earth,
A mother's love is waiting here
We call this wonder birth.
When God calls home a tired soul,
And stills a fitful breath,
Love Divine is waiting there,
This, too, is birth, not death

Give Jack my regards.
Peace for you and the family.
