  1. Craig – my deepest sympathies to you and the rest of the family. I was quite saddened to learn about the passing of my Aunt Marge. She had been very nice to me in the few times I had the opportunity to be around her and you guys. I wish that things between her and your Uncle Bud had been closer, and I have found it frustrating that they weren\’t. It makes her passing all the sadder that he and my Mom weren\’t in the loop – I know that despite whatever kept them apart, your Uncle Bud was grieved by Aunt Marge\’s passing. Please find peace in your Mom\’s passing – she was a gentle and sweet person, much like her own mom, and I was only sorry that I didn\’t know her better as the years went forward – I am sorry for you that she is gone. But, I can see from the obit that she was greatly loved by those around her – that is a beautiful thing to remember her by.
