I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Marcia. We went to school together and lived in Olena and went to the same church. I remember all the good times we had. God Bless.

Marcia always attended any function the family had and with a smile on her face. She was always so jovial. I know I for one will really miss seeing her. We love you Marcia.
