    I worked with Margie in Home Care for about 15 years, she was a wonderful person. I was a billing clerk, and work at many different seats. We always had to chat and laugh about many things that went on in our area. At that time I Lived in Jamestown, PA. Now I Live In South Carolina She would help anyone. God Bless Her.
