    Margie was an exceptional lady. See will be greatly missed. My prayers go out to Ronnie. He took great care of her and made sure she had what she needed. Know that J. T. Was waiting at the pearly gates for her. Rest In Peace.

    Aunt Margie I was the first one to call her that. I am the oldest of all my cousins.she was a sweet and loved her family. She always had a smile for everybody. My Mama Jeanette is broken-hearted that she can’t come to the funeral is he is the oldest then Aunt Margie. They were so close in age they were like two peas in a pod. Growing up. There were two then then 4 more girls and a Brother in the mist. Now there are two left the oldest and youngest. Mama want to send her love to each of you Carolyn,Jerry,Ronnie,Randy., May God be with each of you and your family. In this time of sorrow. Love Judy Gilbert Godsey❤️❤️❤️❤️
