Dear Aimee, Stunned and heartbroken for all of you. Margie was always the most beautiful person. And she lived her life always in a positive way.

I am so sorry to hear of Marge's passing. She was so much fun to work with at Gaia Salon when they were in Merrillville. She was a grand lady and she will be missed by her family and friends. My prayers are with you.
