I am deeply saddened by the loss of Marsha. She was a sweet person who possessed a beautiful soul. Her wonderful personality and giving nature made her a person to be admired and emulated. The times Brenda and I spent with Marsha and Sam will always be cherished. Working with her on the reunion committee was a privilege and a pleasure. To Sam, the children, and grandchildren I am sure you will miss her deeply. I will remember you in my prayers. May God be with you and comfort you in the difficult days ahead.

Dear Sam and family I'm so sorry to hear of Marshas passing. She was such a sweet person. I know you ALL are going to miss her so much!  May God be near each one of you during this time.
Cathy Cook

Dear Sam and family, I am heart-broken at this sad news.  Marsha was a wonderful person who was so sweet, kind, and lovely.  Plus she was such a hard worker.  Marsha had these same admirable qualities throughout the many, many years I have known her.  I know the students she taught throughout the years were greatly blest.  

Please know that you and your entire family are in my prayers.  I am asking God to grant peace to your hearts at this time, and in the days to come.  All of us need to focus on the fact that we believers will be reunited with Marsha someday in heaven.  Knowing this is a comfort to our hearts.      Proverbs 3: 5-6

Linda Price Workman

Dear Sammy,

For no reason at all, I was thinking about Marsha today. I am wishing for you that you stay strong through this loss. I feel pretty sure that Marsha would want that for you, too.

I remember going to your church with Gail Fagge and seeing you and Marsha there serving us for the Love Feast.

Much love,

Karen Bouldin
