My husband Walter & I (Madelyn) have known Margie for many years as well as her husband Walter - during that time - since 1989 I feel that Margie and I became very good friends - she used to love to go out to eat and when able, go shopping, getting her hair done, Dr. visits, etc. also when I was able to assist in taking care of her it was just a blessing for both of us - many times she would say "You know we could be sisters" - She was a very special person and very caring -
