My heart is heavy with the news of Marcia's passing. What a beautiful woman she was inside and out.
I have so many fabulous memories of my summers at MaMa Nancy and Papa Tiny's house and many hours spent with 'Aunt' Marcia! She was always kind, caring and loving to these kiddos that invaded her home on a regular basis.
Eternal rest, grant unto her O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.
Much love to all of you!
