Marge was a beautiful lady and a wonderful mom. Ken loved visiting her and Dad Dawson so much for the holidays and always. She is now one of my guardian angels and I will always be so happy I knew her Heaven is lucky that she is now there with her other loved ones. Also I know she’ll keep a good watch over her wonderful son, Ken. He is so good and I know she was sooo proud of him.
