    My heart is heavy for her birth family. She was the youngest of nine beautiful children. I knew Marla from the time she was a very wee thing so petite and always sweet. I never knew her married family. I will keep all in my prayers. I’m so very, very sorry for the family’s great loss. May you be given a peace that lets you know she’s smiling upon you. With much love, Iris Cripe-Eng
