My dearest Marcia,
Where do I begin to share all the memories from our 39 year friendship...
We shared many struggles over the years from finances, relationships and our hardships having children. What I will remember the most is all the great times we shared. How many times did we laugh so hard playing Spades as partners that we were brought to tears?? Too many to count!
You once told me how much you admired my strength, courage and confidence to make positive changes in my life. We were alike in more ways than you realized! We both sacrificed ourselves for our family. We both worked very hard to improve our careers starting in the shoe shops together and ending up in the medical field together. We both wanted to be the best role models for our children. In the end, it was your courage and strength that I admired. You will forever be in my heart. Your family will always be my family and I will be there for them always!
Marcia, my "Sista", my dear friend, your struggles are over. Although I'm shedding tears of sorrow for losing you, I know one day we'll be shedding tears of joy again when we reunite on the other side. I love you❤

Although she is no longer here for you to see she is still here. She is with you every day. Her love will guide you. It is as strong as it was on any given day. I am very sorry I could not attend her service but please know I was there in heart and thought. Darla

Second, is daddy, you picked the best father anyone could ask for, hes proven he is the strongest man ever, through his heartache he has been my rock, hes been so strong for you momma. Not to mention how incredibly much he loves you and us kids.
And third, you've shown me what love is. What life is. What strength is.

Aunt Marcia,

You have always been one of my favorite people and among the strongest people I know. I'm so sad to say goodbye to you but you'll always be a part of me. I will miss your infectious laugh and love of wildlife. By the way, those "hideous" leggings you used to wear are back in style - who would've thought? Until we meet again ❤️ I love you

My dearest Cha
Don’t know why you were taken from us so soon, we sure did have allot of years filled with good times as well as bad, but there is no one in the world that could have taken your place, I love you for ever and a day.
Thank you for 39 years of your love and support, thank for the wonderful children you gave us.
All though it might be a few years before we are together again I will be looking forward to be in your arms and hear your voice. I will never ever forget you , you are the love of my life and always will be, rest softly my dear and I will see you on the other side.

I love you Aunt Marcia with all my heart................thank you for always being there to support me or my children. It doesn't matter what it was that you was invited to be it a baby shower, birthday get together or house warming party you always was there for us. Your presence will be greatly missed you are loved by so many people you have no idea how you have impacted so many peoples lives in your short 59 years. Life will never be the same it has forever changed as we all know it. That I cannot change, but what I can do is make sure that your memory is honored in each of us. I pledge to you that I will do all that I can to stay connected to our family and try to shine just a little light throughout but I will never be the ray of sunshine you have been. You were the glue that kept our family together.............we will be deeply missed and loved forever.

FROM THE FAMILY

It will be very hard to forget someone who gave us so much to remember…..
