Carol, Jeannie & Susie,
We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. My stepmother, Virginia Clendenin (deceased) was deputy clerk in the federal court downtown, and she knew your mother well and loved her. She always said "Margie is so dahlin". Please accept our deepest condolences.

Jeannie, Carol, & Susie,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I don't remember a lot about your mom, but just remember sometimes going to your house after school (Magruder). I'm sure she was a wonderful person, to have such wonderful daughters. Please know that all of you are in my prayers.
