You know Tracie I got an email today about a parrot that someone trained with dog commands, and without thinking I almost sent it to Marge. She may be gone, but honestly, your Mother was a "character" and will never, ever be forgotten. It is hard in life to make a mark like that, and she did it!
The girls will, as they get older, remember their "poet" with a smile I am sure. I too will have to face this not all that far away, so I understand this one well. I am attached to my grandkids at the heart as well.
Eventually I hope for you all the laughter will come, as there was tons and tons associated with Marge. I bet you could remember a few funnies we don't even know about, and you would rather not tell. Hang in there, time truly does heal.
You can send your pictures to anyone on your mom's email list here and any one of use will be glad to upload anything for you at any time. Just push that little envelope email icon and attach the photos.
Here is just one of the poems of your mom's I have always kept in a drawer, to show the sense of humor I am talking about. She was "something else!" Something special! ((*^))
Put This Hearse - In Reverse by Marge Tindal
If you read the replies on this one you can see she always made her poems send a message, and everyone got it.
