Between Wednesday night bowling and Area Community Theatre, we saw Marge a lot! We would go close down Paul's after bowling and she always kept us smiling! The best was the theatre though. Our very first play was at Paul'sand we were still building the stage at 3:00 a.m. She let us practice until whenever, and just said if you buy a drink put the money on the bar, and just be sure to close the back door behind you! What a gem she was! Thinking of you all in sympathy! Carolyn M Scarborough
