Wyrick, Marjorie L.'s Guestbook

We are sorry for your loss. I worked with Marge at Southwestern Bell. She was so kind to me as a new service representative and helped me as I adjusted to my first real job. She was truly a beautiful person and a wonderful lady. She had such a nice smile for everyone. The world is a better place because of her.

I love you sweet Margie and will miss your loving disposition and fighting spirit. Rest in God’s arms.
