    Hi,
    It brought me great saddness to hear of the passing of Marjorie. I know she will be missed but find comfort in knowing that she will be waiting at heaven's door to greet us one sweet day.

    My mother, Judy Smith Driggers, was Marjorie's first cousin. Mama loved her so. We have heard many stories
    of the good olde days that mama and Marjorie shared as children and young adults.

    Our love and prayers to the family.

    Marge was a dear friend of my mother Goldie Calfee as well as to Linda and I. We extend our condolences to the family and pray that the Holy Spirit fill the void with Love and Peace.

    Hebrews 12:1-2
    Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses (in Heaven), let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
    Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

    I am so sorry to hear about your mother, she was just a wonderful person. What I remember most about her, is she had the most beautiful smile and she was always happy to see me when I stopped by. I know she will be missed by many and she is definitely an angel. My deepest sympathy goes out to you.

    My deepest sympathy to all of the family in the passing of Margie. I will always remember her beautiful smile. I would like to share this with each of you. It isn't easy to say goodbye to leave the ones we love to not be able to share some time and exchange hellos and a hug; I miss your laughter, your wonderful smile your goodness and your caring ways, I miss your warmth and thoughtfulness and how you brightened so many of my days. When you feel sad and anguish is near please remember I walk with Our Lord where only peace and beauty live and great love is our reward; I've asked God to comfort your heart now and to guide your dreams as they grow to inspire joy and wisdom on whichever paths you go;So though I have gone on you must live and love and smile for our parting is not forever, -it is only for while. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May God Bless. I am the daugher of Kenneth & Mary Etta Giddens (granddaughter of Gus & Emma Butler Smith).

    Grandmamma,
    You were the head of our family... The one who made the rest of us happen. You were an AMAZING woman and if any of us can be 10% of the person you were, we are beyond lucky. The world was a much better place having had you in it. Im so glad me and Sista got to spend so much time with you a few weeks ago. It was so much fun and Ill cherish that weekend forevor. Im also glad that we were with you this weekend as well. I think you were taken from us too soon but I will not dwell on that, rather be thankful for having you. Mom, Aunt Maureen, Aunt Polly and Uncle Jeff are 4 amazing people and you are the reason for that. You are leaving behind an amazing family that will always love you and miss you dearly. Love you so much Grandmamma.....

    Dear Marcia, Maureen, Polly, and Jeff,
    Please accept our deepest sympathy in your loss. I had wanted to drive daddy and Wynelle to see Aunt Margie and you all a few weeks back, but was unable to go at that time. I am so glad that daddy was able to go and spend time with her. I will always remember Aunt Margie as such a fun and youthful lady! Losing your mom is a tough thing to deal with and sadness will sometimes seem to be overwhelming, but knowing that she is no longer suffering and is rejoicing with family in her heavenly home is a comfort that you can lean on. I look forward to seeing you Saturday to rejoice in the memory of your mother. With love and prayer for each of you, Elaine
