“Big Sister - Ever since I can remember, Marg was a hard worker and served as a good example. She cared about people which led her to the nursing field. Although she made the decision to spend the rest of her Christmases with Emmet and Jesus, she will be deeply missed here. Rest in peace and remember, I love you. Ned”
