    Dear Tom and family I am so sorry for your loss please know that I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers the days ahead as well. Margie was a great coworker and great friend. We celebrated our birthdays together she never forgot mine and I never forgot hers. We also loved horses talked about how our hair was getting curlier as we got older. I know how much she loved all of you and she talked about her family a lot and I will never forget her. Peace to all of you, Michele L Woodhams
