Margie was has been such a positive influence on my entire family. I am forever grateful for my sister moving next to the Kressler family and bringing them into all of our lives. She accepted my neices and nephews as her own grandchildren and never made my children and my grandchildren feel as less than her own.
Rest well sweet lady, give Whelie a hug from us, and know you are always in our hearts.
