  1. Dear Nettie and Bob I am so sorry for your loss. I’m sure Marguerite’s guardian angel is guiding her to her heavenly home…………..Marie Mancini Deme

  2. Nettie and all the Family…….. We have been blessed by the continued correspondences by mail from Marguerite to us (the Karkut sisters) here in California. My mother Antonia Karkut was a fellow Cadet Nurse and career nurse with Marguerite and Ruby. Marguerite would often write or call and share stories from the past and present. She will forever have a special place in our hearts, she was a truly thoughtful and kind person. May the prayers of those who love you carry you through this time of sorrow. With deepest Sympathy, Roxanne & Maddie, Nick and sisters Joyce and Brenda

  3. Nettie, Bob Sr., Bob Jr., and Fran: We are sorry for the loss of your sister and aunt (Aunt Marg!). We pray that in this time of sadness, you will all be sustained by many happy memories and by the knowledge that she blessed and helped and contributed to so many people in so many ways during her life. May GOD bless and comfort you. Love, Charlie and Marci
