Our family wishes to thank the staff of Good Shepherd for their respectful and kind care of Marge this past year and a half, and the staff of Ridgeview Assisted Living for their care and support. We also thank the many friends who loyally visited Marge over these years. Your constant presence and love shown to her was a comfort to Marge and her children more than words can express.
