This is so hard, my best friend of over 60 years stopped fighting cancer. Everyday I dreaded the call I would get. Bud just called and told me this is the hardest call to make to me. It hurts! Marge, my buddy my friend forever passed Saturday. She was tough, fought it for 20 yrs and never talked about her pain. God has a very special Angel! Always love you Marge, in my heart forever
