My partner, Mike Bryant and I have known Marcia as a dear neighbor and close friend in Margate. We had opportunity to chat while walking our Bonnie, Clyde, and Stitch, when crossing paths with her and Al while walking Oreo. Always a good time to chat and share stories. We will surely miss Marci, but know that her spirit and friendship will always be with us.

We did not know Marcia. However, we see her kind, loving spirit and adventurous nature in Belinda and Amber, as well as Aryana, and Joshua. Her legacy lives on in all of you! Celebrate her and the memories you cherish, and she will always be with you. With love across the miles - Aileen, Eric, Gunnar, and Aksel.

I have such amazing memories of my grandmother. She was always around for almost every holiday and birthday. I am going to miss her dearly, it’s going to be so hard without her around. Im so beyond blessed my children got to meet and know their great-grandmother. She always had such a beautiful smile and caring personality. She always called me just wanting to talk. Grandma actually had a really good sense of humor. I never knew until my adult years, but she was really funny. I already miss her and her laugh so much. I will forever cherish the wonderful memories we had together. I love you grandma forever and always.

I net Marcie at Belinda's I think back in early 2002 at one of Amber's Birthday parties. She had such a great smile and immediately started talking to me about Amber and my son Justin. I met Al with her again at Belinda's home at a NE Patriots Superbowl party. Marcie helped e decorations,food preparation and even joined in helping Al with our Football squares, lol. RIP, Marcie, tomorrow you will have a great seat in Heaven to watch the game ♥️🙏

Belinda, Chris & Darryl, Your Mom was such a huge blessing to me growing up! No matter what was happening in our crazy youth, your Mom always found a way to keep us on track and create such an amazing sense of normalcy and security. She was kind, funny and forever young! I feel so lucky to have known your Mom and to have been welcomed so warmly into your family. Sending love and healing to all of you - I know you’ll miss her dearly. ❤️ Michelle

I met Marcie in 2002 shortly after I started dating her daughter Belinda, who would become my wife in 2004. I liked Marcie right away, and I know she liked me too. We always had nice conversations and our relationship was "always" friendly. When my Mother met Marcie, she also liked her instantly and they always got along nicely until my Mother passed. I have so many nice memories of going out to dinner with Marcie and Al over the past 17 years. We went to almost every kind of restaurant but all of our favorite was Okeechobee steak house, and we always had a nice time having drinks together first at the bar, and there was always lots of conversation and catching up. Even recently we all had dinner together at Lucille's Bar B Que, and Marcie liked the food there very much.
Whenever we got together with Marcie, as soon as she saw me, she always gave what I felt was a very nice heartfelt "hello." I visited her a few times recently when she was residing at Grand Court in Pompano and she just seemed thrilled I came. I was only stopping by for a few minutes, but we ending up hanging out for an hour. That's one of my favorite times with Marcie.
I loved Marcie and I wish I had one more chance to tell her so. The last time I saw her she was sleeping in hospice. Marcie was always kind and cordial with me, and to my family as well. She had traditional old fashioned values and I liked that.
I did get to thank Marcie for doing such a wonderful job raising Belinda. Belinda is an outstanding person, and I know Marcie had something to do with that. I will miss Marcie, and I'm relieved she is no longer in pain, and can rest now.
