My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family at this time. I will always remember Margie fondly with song book in hand singing praises and a steadfast member at Alder Springs Baptist Church. Such great memories as a child of visiting at her house after Sunday church with Denny one of my best friends now gone as well. Those long time neighbors in Alder Springs are slowly fading away. Rest in peace in the arms of Jesus Margie.
