Marcie was my Avon representative when we first moved to Laotto. She came to my door one day and I almost didn't answer it but I am so glad I did. We sat and talked for at least an hour and a half. I invited her to come to our church, Laotto Wesleyan, and she came. Marcie had a heart of gold. It was obvious she loved her family. I never heard Marcie utter a bad thing about anyone or anything. I'm grateful she is enjoying her reward in heaven but she leaves a big hole here on earth. May God comfort all of her family and friends.
