Dear Cousin Marge,How my memories of you flood my mind. I remember walking down the aisle of your wedding in the basement of the Catholic school, as flower girl, to join Mary Helen and Beeba. When you were pregnant with Mike, Lela and Bessie would put the button on a string to tell us what sex the baby would be. Baby Mike was so adorable and you got so mad at my dad when he would scare Mike as he did with all the Curtis Cousins. I so vividly remember you, me & Kim attending Ward Clerk classes at the Sr. High and you and we could not contain our laughter. You were always laughing. You made all of us laugh! You helped out at my wedding and even ironed my wedding dress. How you could Greek Dance. I don't think anybody was better! I can see you leading the way up at Don & Metera's and at my wedding. Last time I saw you was Dad's funeral the beginning of 2013. You and Gloria were there and I came to talk to you. We have both had poor health since then but you impression on a younger cousin will remain forever with many of us. My deepest condolences to Mike and Darla. Being a motherless child is a difficult place to adjust to. Grief never goes away. It may evolve but I pray that your family finds the strength and wisdom to navigate a lonely journey! Love, your little cousin, Stephanie~
