For the family of Marge Aguilera
By reading the online condolences in honor of Marge, it's very apparent that so many loved her and enjoyed her company! I know how her memories will help you all heal, though it's very hard to love a grandmother, sister, friend. I see that even as a "senior lady", Marge was still beautiful.
My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Aguilera family. May God comfort you in you time of loss. The Herrera Family

Vicky and Ben,
What a shock to learn of your mothers passing. I met Marge many years ago when she worked at Sprouts Cleaners. Through the years she mented and sewed for me. As the years passed, we became closer friends, and enjoyed teasing each other. Even through our health issues last year, we supported each other with positive thoughts of overcoming. Read the book: HEAVEN IS FOR REAL. It will help you cope with your loss. Hugs and prayers to you.
To Vicki, Ben and Tim
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. Marge was a special lady to everyone who knew her. She is very loved and will be missed. My deepest sympathy to all.
To The Family of Margie Aguilera, Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Aguilera family with the loss of a wonderful lady whom will be greatly missed by all. We will miss her beautiful smile, and wonderful friendship she had with all.

To the Family of Marge Aguilera
Nancy and all the family. I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your sister. I rem all the good times when we were having Stanley parties and that is a very fond memory with all you girls. So very sorry for your loss.
It deeply saddens me to learn of Margie's passing. Our families were so close when we were all growing up in Wiley. (One of the advantages of being raised in a small community.) Margie always had a smile and a friendly hug whenever I saw her. May God hold you in his hand, right next to his heart, and give you comfort and peace in these difficult times. May you find comfort in your memories and know that I am thinking of you all in the days to come.
Love to you all,
Marge (Koenig) Campbell
Vickie, Ben & Tim,
