    Dear Marv and Family,

                    Bev and I were deeply saddened to learn of Marsha’s passing.  We remember well all the good times we had together in Clinton.  Marsha was always positive, optimistic, funny and supportive and we will always remember her for those qualities.  Marv, I also am fond of the time we spent together both at work and privately and am thinking of you in this difficult time.  Please take care,


    Jack and Bev Friend
