Our deepest sympathy to Marge's family. Marge was a phenomenal mentor/teacher to my daughter at Wellsprings. She loved Ginia like her own. She and Ginia maintained a connection beyond Wellsprings which meant everything to Ginia to this day. Marge loved nature and helping others. We are all so lucky to have had the opportunity to have Marge in our lives...to experience her energy...and now it is her time...on to the next journey! Love ya
