I am so sorry to hear of Margie's passing.
She was a wonderful person, full of joy and caring.
The world will be a sadder place without her, but I am sure she has gone on to something better.

Margie was a fine friend and lady that will be missed. She loved her family and her church and relied on the power of prayer! In sympathy to her family!

Hello, sorry for your loss. Death is a terrible sting to the heart. It seems unfair when we loose a loved one. Please consider 2Corinthians 1:3,4. It’s a nice reminder that God really cares for us and we do not have to handle this alone. Jesus felt the same way and showed it by healing those who were sick and lame. Even raised the dead. That proves we are precious in God’s eyes. Words do bring comfort but the Bible heals our heart. Again I’m sorry for your loss
