    My dear, dear Marsha, always too much for this world. Uncontainable and uncontrollable, a leader and never a follower. She was a tremendous presence in my life for decades. Every part of me misses her formidable spirit.
    Thinking of her mom, siblings, daughter and many friends during this difficult time.
    No more pain, precious child of God.

    My sincerest sympathy for Marsha’s family. We were the best of friends as I lived up the street when we were children in Albany MO. As I married young we lost touch. I truly believe we will see each other again. My thoughts and prayers are with Jean and her brothers and sisters.

    Brian, Phyllis and Erica,
    I am so sorry for your loss. And sorrier that I was unable to be much comfort except to hug the stuffing out of Erica. You reared an amazingly loving and caring child. I hope you all find comfort in funny stories and can laugh amongst tears. That’s what we’ve been doing for weeks and will probably do for many years.

    While I didn’t know you for more than a year, your impact will stay with me forever. You were adored by many and I’m so thankful to have known you.
