Les, I was so sorry to learn of Margie's passing.  I was thinking about her last week.  We had so much fun working together at Dickinson College.  I will always treasure those memories and our time together. Also, visiting you both at your lovely home.  Sending our prayers, love and thoughts to you during this difficult time.
