  1. I was saddened to learn of Margie's passing. For nearly 30 years, she was part of our closely knit family at Tom's Grill. Margie takes with her the art of making "twice baked potatoes" and the perfect "relish tray." Thanks, Margie, for so many warm and wonderful memories.

  2. Terry, Richard, and sorry for your loss. She Will always be there watching over you. As she will always be in your hearts and memories. Love you guys! Connie
