I worked with Margie at the University of Kansas. She worked in the Admissions office with me enrolling new students during the summer. We had mutual friends and her friendship brought me much joy. She had a fun disposition and a beautiful beaming smile. I went to visit her in New York and my wife and I had a wonderful time. I will miss her for the rest of my life as she was a friend forever.
