    To All the Family — I remember when Emma Sargent’s store was purchased by Midge and John and how it was told that they were chosen to purchase the store because they reminded Emma and her sister Edie of Eddie Fisher and Liz Taylor! Midge was a wonderful sweet person and I admired her very much. Rest in peace Midge. It was great knowing you.
