We were childhood friends with all the Pittman girls and spent many hours of great play together. Our mothers were best friends for years so the friendship connection was strengthened through this. So sorry for your loss as we know how difficult it is to let go of the ones you loved so dearly. Jean Davenport and Robert (Buddy)West.

Pad, my heart hurts for you and your family on your loss of Marsha. I thought you were crazy getting married when you did. But that just meant Marsha made a man out of you while the rest of us were still playing at being boys. I always admired the great life and love’s work you two made together with and for each other and for others.

I remember sitting in your living room at midnight on hurricane surf watch deciding when we were going to head for the beach ...... Marsha bringing us drinks and putting up with that ..... true love right? I remember you, me, Bill, Marsha and our wives going out for dinner in 1987 across the river and Marsha, upon noting we had all married older women, commenting that just meant that we might as well have married our moms. Paula commented on the big difference between them and our moms and the look on Marsha’s face was priceless🤣. And I remember the a dinner we all had with Marsha summer before last. A nice steak cookout at Bill’s. We didn’t know if Marsha would come. She was having trouble with her teeth and didn’t feel great. But thankfully she did come with you. And damn if she didn’t clean her plate, steak and all. Paired with a great bottle of wine, she had a great evening and it did all of our hearts good to see her having fun.

Remember the good times and the love. Ours hearts are with you.
