Marjorie was a special neighbor. Mark and I felt very welcomed back to the neighborhood when we moved back to the farm by both Marjorie and Otto. Our prayers go out to all the family.

Sorry to hear about Margie. It is our hope that the fond memories will carry you through this time of sorrow. She had a good journey of faith. I remember some of her good meals when we visited for reunions or years ago when I visited with my parents Hans and Tina. Otto, thanks for keeping in touch on my birthdays.
