    fargo n.dakThere are know right words to say or use at a time like this an there is know way to prepare for it but ran across a poem : IT made me think of Marjorie : You can shed tears that she is gone or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left. your heart can be empty because you can’t see her or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her and only that she’s gone or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be emptyand turn your back or you can do what she’d want smile, open your eyes,love and go on. She was a very strong woman who finally gave up the fight but left behind a beautiful family to carry on where she left off. from all the staff at MEXICAN village
