Thoughts, prayers and hugs to your family. Jan Hughes
For the entire family of Marge Hayes,
Please accept this as my condolence for Marge. She is one of my dear oldest friend first meeting her in 1961. Since that time whenever we would see each other and always with her big smile and a hug, Hi Ralphie!” Damn cool, classy lady. “I did not see you often but I know I’m gonna miss Ya. Peace to you Margie”
I will always remember Marge as a kind and loving person. She was always supportive and quick to smile. She was a beautiful woman, inside and out and will remain cherished in my memories. Deepest condolences to all of her family, especially her daughter, Ann, who is like a sister to me. Prayers for your peace and comfort. Lisa Fry
