Please accept our deepest sympathies in the loss of your beloved Mrs. Garvey. May it help you to know that the hearts of others are deeply touched by your loss. Even though our hearts ache, we can find comfort in the God of all comfort whose is near to us with a broken heart.

To the family of Marge Garvey, so sorry to hear of Marge's passing. She was a wonderful lady. I got to know her for only a short part of her life but grew very fond of her. I know she is happy in heaven with God. We will all miss her.

Sincerely, Patty Pigga and son Stephen

My thoughts and prayer's go out to Margaret's family. Alice spoke very highly of her sister, and from all the talks we had about her, I feel like I practically knew her. I am so sorry for your loss.
