    Sending my love and sympathy to the family. Marcine and I played together when we were small children growing up in the Purdy, Mo. community. We have been friends all of these years. Our families were close friends. I wish I could attend the service but distant keeps me from being there. I will be praying for God to give the family Peace during this time of sorrow.

    My sympathy and prayers to the family. My sister and I both have many memories of Marcine while we were growing up. She and her husband Raymond were good friends of our parents, Hugh and Augusta Jackson. We met them regularly at the Eudora Assembly of God Church. She attended services there as long as she was able. I will miss my weekly hug from her. I regret not attending the service but I did not learn about her passing until the next day.
