Aunt Marj was an amazing person--she brightened the room when she entered. Always smiling, she could make anyone feel special. Love to all the family.
-Kim Cooper

Thank you for all the good times I had over at your house letting me climb your mimosa tree, walk across your fence, swim in the pool. You welcomed me with bologna with messages written in mustard, pickles, and other snacks. It made for a happier childhood. Rest in peace.
-Joanne Schrader
