“When I come to the end of the road, And the sun has set for me, I want no rites in gloom-filled room. Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little – but not too long, And not with your head bowed low. Remember the time that we once shared. Miss me…but let me go.”
At Marjorie’s request there will be no service as she hosted her 90th birthday in its place. You are asked to visit a spot near water. There, spend a moment reflecting on her life, the wonder and beauty of nature, and what we all can do to make the world a better place.
Rather than donations, please invite a friend out for a walk or make them lunch or share some tea. Just listen and talk with that person. Marjorie is remembered as having a positive attitude, being artistically talented, being kind and interested in the lives of other people, and inspiring people to do their best and beyond.
