Hi all, Tracie asked me to put some photos up of the girls, because she doesn't know how to do that.
So here are Marge's precious grandie girls.


Marge's sister Lori (from California) made necklaces for the girls to remember their Poet.


Tracie and the grandiegirls.


Daddy David and his girls.


Two silly grandie girls.

Titia,

Please tell Tracie how touched I am to see these pictures - and the picture of "Poet" in roller skates choked me up.

Dearest Tracie (and yes, Titia)

please know I'm thinking of you as you work your way through this day in a painfully unfamiliar way.

I used to call your mother, m.o.m.s.

That stood for mother of my soul.

She was a special lady indeed.

I can sure see where her inspiration came from in this beautiful family.  Thank you Tracie for sending us an update through Titia.

Thanks so much for the pictures Tracie and Titia. I loved the drawing of Marge rollerskating ... that brought such a smile!

Thinking of you and your families Tracie.

I do not know if you all know that Marge once ran a rollar skating place in Deland. She must have been a good skater. I stopped by there years ago, before I ever heard of PIP or Marge. It was fun to learn she had owned it. I can picture her dancing on skates.

I rollar skated  since I was a kid but that was street skating with the clip on skates and skate key. When I was fifty eight I started to skate in rinks with a lady friend who was a few years older than I am. She and I went  looking around  central Florida for a nice skating rink when she came to visit me here, and  that was the reason we stopped in Deland.  Just thought I'd add this info  in case some of you wondered why the grandee girlies drew her with rollar skates. Thanks Titia and Tracie for the photos. latearrival

Titia, thank you so much for posting this. I have missed seeing these grandgirlies. I have missed seeing them, so much. They are sure growing. It's nice to see pictures of Tracie and David, too. I miss Marge more than anyone knows. She was my greatest inspiration.

Hi again--
I guess I could have explained more with the pictures I sent to Titia. The necklaces the girls are wearing have charms that say "Poet" on them, and a roller skate charm. The picture was drawn by a deaf woman who got her first job working at the skating rink for my mom. She came to Mom's service and presented the drawing. The grandie girls hung it on their bedroom door and wrote "This is Poet" on it. Thanks for providing the info that my Mom used to own and run the skating rink in Deland. One of her poems as a teen was "Make a date to roller skate" as she entered a contest to name the skating rink "Date n' Skate". She won that contest, married the owner of the skating rink, they had us kids, then opened the new skating rink in Deland. I hope I'm not boring you now with too much info, but just wanted to clarify. Thanks all--Tracie

Hé Tracie, no way you're boring us with stories about Marge. I think we all enjoy to read them.

Now that's something we didn't know, Tracie. Thanks for filling in the blanks, and for your continued sharing of "our" grandie-girls!

Thanks for sharing the pictues, Tracie. They are as beautiful as ever. I sure do miss getting them from Marge in my email inbox along with her latest poem. And there is a huge hole here at Passions without her too. She will always be missed deeply.

Thanks for posting the pictures, Titia.

I enjoyed these pictures deeply, remembering our moon lady with love and admiration.
How she adored the little ones and certainly was loved back with equal passion.
It was great, dear Tracie, to hear the story of that roller skater picture. Thank you for sharing it.
Me too, I can imagine graceful Marge how she skates in perfect lightness and harmony.
Thank you also Titia.
Love,
Margherita
