    To Marge’s family,
    Sorry to learn of Marge’s passing but glad to learn that she lived many years after we lost contact with her. We live in Atlanta and saw her obituary in the AJC. Marge, Bill and their family were our neighbors in Hillsdale, NJ many years ago. Barbara used to babysit for our children. Hope the family is doing well. I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to say Hello. We remember all of you as great neighbors and friends.
