Debbie & family - so sorry to hear of Marci's passing. Sounds like she put up the good fight. Can't believe how long it's been since the 'crazy' days which weren't really so crazy at all - just fun. I still remember babysitting Tami and Kevin. Seems she gathered many more children along the way which doesn't surprise me either as she was a loving big-hearted lady. She will be missed by many. The world is a better place for having had her in it. God's Blessings on the entire family and all of Marcia's friends and caregivers.
