Thank you for sharing this. Mama had a beautiful voice, almost a tenor.

I remember Marjorie in a few Princeton, KS High School classes. She was the smartest one in the class. She was quiet and listened intently to everything and rarely spoke up until she had it down perfectly. Marjorie, another friend, Lois and I were in a trio together. I loved it. I was the soprano. In comparison to them I was short, shy and had little to add. I was the underclass third tagging along when we went to contests. Marjorie's face on the picture of her reclining in the grass is how I always visualize her.

Marge was a beautiful lady. She was one of the first adults I remember as a child. Larry and Marge were friends of my parents. I remember working in their fields and Marge always made sure I was well fed. Marge and my mother were great friends and I know Marge helped my mother many times. What a beautiful lady. God bless Marge. Many of her friends that passed before will rejoice when they meet again.
