To the Hudson Family. We are sorry to hear of the loss of this lovely lady. While Mom was in Good Sam, Marjorie's smiling face was a welcome sight when we arrived in Quincy. Our sincere condolences to each of you. She will be deeply missed to all who passed her way.

It was nearly ten years ago that Marjorie asked me to conduct her funeral. She assumed that at 95 or so years of age, she wasn't long for this world. I told her she wasn't allowed to die until the Cubs won the pennant. Sadly, the Cubs couldn't produce a winning season before she passed from this world, and I have moved on to another pastorate, many miles away. I am sure that James and Tim will do a good job of conducting her final rites. But, I want her family to know that Marjorie's greatest accomplishment was not that she lived such an extraordinarily long life, but that in all that time, she did not outlive the love and admiration people had for her. We commend her to God's gracious keeping, and with gratitude that we had such a sweet soul with us for long. Now, if only the Cubs had kept their part of the bargain...

Dear Betty, Kay and Bradette,
We were honored to be close friends of all of the Hudsons' through the years. Your mother was a model for living life to the fullest as she accumulated many many admirers and friends with her using each moment of her life constructively. (Your dad fit that mold, also). Thankfully, we had her benevolence for many years,
We hope God's Blessings and your own special memories will help you in the years ahead without your mother. Best wishes.
