  3. I entertained the residents of Victory Lakes last evening and asked where Margie and her daughter were. I am sad to hear of her passing and my prayers go out to her family members. She would always appreciate when I would dedicate her song “ Somewhere My Love” in memory of her and her husband’s wedding anniversary. So sorry for her family.
