Oh, Shay, Anna just informed us about your moms passing. Roger and I are so saddened by it. Margie was always so great to us and we loved socializing with her as soccer parents. After that she took our dog, Clara , to your house whenever we took a vacation. She was always so kind and loving. And so very funny and fun-loving. You must be in so much pain losing her. Hugs from both of us, Mary and Roger.

My deepest condolences to all the family and friends of Margie. The Riley's were our neighbors in the "Alley" and we have some of the best memories of them all (including all of our extended families.) There has never been anyone like Margie - she was one in a million! It is a sad day to learn about this loss. I know Babe will be serenading you with "Pennies from Heaven". Always in our hearts, Margie!

My sympathy to the Riley , Spencer family. Although I havent seen the Alley gang in many many years you never forget the good people that came out of there. We were neighbors and friends and our parents were the same. We grew up as kids and deep memories came from that. They were good years and fun years. I am so sorry to hear of Margie passing. May your memories be your greatest comfort. You are in my prayers.
