  1. Miss you but know you are resting instead of in pain. All of us kids are doing what you wished, just wish we had consulted with Dad (Arnold)too. But you always spoke for him so I guess we’ll go with your requests (since his passing in July 7, 1998).

  2. Our thoughts and prays go out to all the members of this family. Marj is now in a better place and keeping an eye on us. She will be missed more than words can say.

  3. I have so many memories of our family holiday dinners at your house when our families would get together. Thanks for the memories Aunt Marji, you will forever be in our heart & thoughts. Love, Vickie Lynne (Niece)

  4. Our deepest sympathy to all of you for your loss. Margi was a wonderful and caring person. I regret we didn’t get down to visit. We always appreciated her messages at Christmas, her emails and her geneology updates. Love to all, Bill, Kathy and family

  5. My visit to California in June 2009 was to see Chuck whom you advised me that he was terminal. What a shock when I arrived to see you ill. After I had taking you to the hospital & finding out you had up to 3 months to live. Chuck is still here & you are gone. Glad Raife & I made it down in time to see you. Miss you & Dad but know you are together again finally. Love Alice
