Julie and family please accept my deepest sympathy for your tremendous loss. You and your family are in my prayers and thoughts. I didn’t know your Mom personal but if she anything like Julie she must have been fun to know her and to be around. Love you always Julie.

Dear Olk & Major Families,
Was so sorry to hear of Margee's, passing she was always fun to be around always a smile for everyone. It has been so many years since we have seen each other but memories bring us back to the "ole" days. Thinking of all of you. God bless you all during this most difficult time.
Rest in peace Margee.
