You were one of God's true Blessings. I feel very honored to have had you in my life these past twelve years. I will miss your barbs which always brought laughter at our staff meetings. I will miss your smile which warmed hearts. I will miss our heart to heart talks. I will always be sorry that I was not there to tell you I loved you when you went out sick. You will always hold a special place in my heart.

Marcia was always one with a witty comment on almost any subject or situation. She often brought a smile or a laugh to a conversation. I will miss her as both a former co-worker and as a friend. God Bless you, Marcia
