    I am a Lake Pointe Landing resident. I am happy that I had the opportunity to know Marjorie. I enjoyed many Saturday morning swims with this remarkable lady. She is truly missed here.

    I am blessed to have known this truly amazing lady. I never saw her when she wasn't cheerful and well, and only a few months until her 100th birthday! I won't be forgetting Marjorie, I will think of her fondly and often.
