In the past weeks I've collected all that was written for and about Marge and paste it to word documents. Yesterday I've send them to Tracie, Marge's daughter and today I got an email from her:

Hi Titia-
  Thank you SO MUCH for the tributes and message pages you sent to me about my mom. That must have taken a lot of time and work for you to do, and I am thrilled to have them. I have also shared them with my 3 brothers. I am printing them all to save, and my tech savvy brothers are copying them to discs.


and another one:

Titia-
   I am now reading the poems and comments you sent me from all the poetry tributes for my mom. Would you please let the writers know how treasured their poems and kinds words are to Marge's family. I get goosebumps reading some of the poems, and tears reading the comments. I feel the love, and I want them all to know that it is so appreciated and comforting. Thank you again, Tracie


I miss Marge a lot and the other day, when I showed Mommy Muys a thank you email that David (Marge's Son) had send to her, she had to cry again. She said 'How is it possible to love someone, whom I've never seen, so much. It's like I've lost a daughter'. I think that's how most of us feel about Marge, she was not just a friend, but so much more than that.

Thank you for doing this on our behalf, Titia and warming so many hearts, though opening the floodgates of so many tears, at the same time.  

Tears and hugs

Thank you Titia, for such a wonderful gift for Marge's family. Yes, Marge was far more than 'poet' to this Pips family.

Dear Titia, what a lovely gift for dear Marge's family! Thank you for doing this.

Today is full moon and how can we not think of our beloved Moon Lady? She is so deeply missed.

Love,
Margherita

You're all welcome, I just knew it was important for them to know how much Marge was loved in the pages blue.

And tonight I could not but answer Moon's call to play with Marge http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum100/HTML/000830.html

I miss her.

Thank you, Titia ~ and thank you, Tracie.

It is comforting to know that Marge's family has a compilation of all the outpouring of love, respect, and admiration we had ~ and will continue to have ~ for her.

Love & Everlasting Life,
Linda

Titia, what a kind and significant gift. I still have multiple volumes of three ring binders from the poetry written at the time of my daughter Ginger's death. You have provided something that will keep on giving for years to come. How very thoughtful of you. Please tell mama Muys hello for me and give her a big hug.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Thanks all.
Next project is collecting all Marge's Moon poems she's written here on Pip and putting them in a book for Tracie and her brothers.
A collection of about 150 poems devided over 48 pages. It's looking beautiful and Tracie was delighted with the idea.
And so, maybe next project is to collect all she has written about the grandiegirls to make a memory book for them.
It's my way of saying farewell to a beautiful poet and dear friend.

~Titia~

Hello Titia ... how can we thank you for what you did for Marge's family. I get goosebumps just thinking about it! I am sure her grandiegirls will cherish the poems and comments when they get a bit older.

Love to you and Muys, Marti

p.s.  I miss her so much

It is just not the same is it Titia?  What a wonderful thing you are doing for her family, but that is just "you."
