    Dear Sandra and family,
    My condolences to you all for your loss of Margie. I didn’t know she had passed this past January. My Mom passed in January 2020. I just ran across some pictures of you and Margie from my Mom and Dads 50th wedding anniversary and thought of Margie and you. Feel free to get in touch. I have some documents that Dad had that I would like to give to you.
    My condolences for your loss.
