    Hold tight to all the memories. May she rest in peace and God hold all of you lovingly in his hands.

  2. May Marge rest in peace. My husband Steve and I extend our deepest sympathies to Ed and the rest of the family. We were blessed to get to know Ed and Marge at Blessed Sacrament Church. We so looked forward to seeing them most Sundays. We have been thinking of them since this darn pandemic started, as well as praying for their health. Know that we will miss that sparkle in Marge’s eye and her advice for a happy marriage – “get a BIG stick and use it often!”. Eternal Rest dear Marge and may the peace that surpasses all understanding be with Ed and all the family during this time of sadness and sorrow.
