I was so saddened to hear of Marsha's passing. John Clemmer wrote and told me a couple of days ago that you had called him. My prayers go out to you and your family at this time.

I am so sorry for your loss!  I didn't have classes with Marsha but I am remembering Girl Scouts...her laughter at something we were doing or supposed to be doing comes to mind!

I pray you have many memories that make you laugh as well as cry!

Blessings and peace and love as you and the family move forward!
