Jeff & Family,

Sorry to hear about your loss. If there is anything my family can do for yours we'd be more than happy to help.

We camped with Marge for years with Good Sam. She was a very nice lady with a generous spirit and a great love for her family. We will keep her family in our prayers. She will be missed.
