To the entire Bednar family my heart is broken for your loss. I love you all and Marge was the life of every party. Carol loved her very much too. She and each of you will always be in my heart. Vince I know how you feel loosing the one you love. I thank God so much for my friendship with the entire Bednar family. Vince and Marge are great spirits that are and will be still spiritually alive. I am very sure Carol has already greeted and welcomed Marge into her new existence. Now they can laugh with each other again and tell each other stories about Vince and me. What a grand party that must have been. So the thunder we heard was them laughing from heaven. Jim Burns
