I had the pleasure of getting to know Marjory over the last ten years. Her husband Roy and her would have a get together every year about this time in February. They would open up their home and their hearts to anyone and everyone and make them feel loved and welcomed. I know Marjory is with her lord and savior now and that she would not want us to cry for her, but she was a grand lady and our hearts were broken the day we heard she had passed. We will miss that smile she always had for you. I know she is watching down on us and saying right now, "please take care of Roy". Rest in peace Marjory knowing that he is being taken care of. Until we meet again.

I spent a most pleasureable day with the Boones a couple of years ago, at Mr. Roys annual military outing.
Mrs. Marjory took me in as family and we had a great time, heaven is rejoicing. May Gods mercy and kindness be with her loved ones.
