“BeLoved is a tale of one woman’s self discovery, family love, and finding love from others and for herself. It is also a tale about finding a vocation, how to identify and acknowledge self worth and how we can all wholeheartedly contribute to our communities. It is beautifully written, raw and engaging.”- Jodi Hughes, Chairperson for Reach Homeless Services

"Margie is the most amazing woman you could ever meet. A lot of words come to mind but let me run you through some. Kind, generous, lovely and talented. Margie done my Dad's service for his funeral and the way she put my dad's service together was outstanding. She was amazing. Everyone was blown away with how beautiful it was. She spoke and took the time out to meet my Dad to get to know him and the life he lived. She couldn't of put the words together better then what she had done. She spoke of my dad highly and at the end of the service everyone really felt who my dad was.
I am so grateful and thankful for what she has done for me and my family epecially my dad.
