  • Jim and I were saddened to hear of the passing of Marjorie. We had the great privilege of meeting Marjorie at Adam and Caroline’s wedding. What a lovely lady she was! It was so much fun to hear the common history she shared with my mother (Buzby) and with the Cacchio’s from Columbus’ west side. And it was very obvious that she was happy to be able to witness the marriage of her dear grandson, Adam to Caroline. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time of mourning. Jim and Chris Eide (Caroline’s mom).
