Mac, We are so sorry to hear about Marsha’s passing. We know this has been very difficult for you both. May God hold you both in His loving arms with His comfort and His peace. Sending you love and prayers.
Mac, I’m devastated to see this. Although our contact has been so limited, she has been in my heart since those early days at EIU. She will always be one of the most special people I have ever known. My deepest, heartfelt sympathies.
My deepest condolences to Mac and family. I worked with Marsha at Allsup for many years. I remember fun times and good conversations with Marsha. We would discuss the antics of our silly, but loveable, dogs. Marsha was a wonderful lady with a kind heart. The loss of her too soon is so sad. Thoughts and prayers are being sent.

Late June I asked Marsha how long we had been friends. Our parents had been friends, we did everything together in high school, went picked up from college for concerts and she was in my wedding. Marsha did not an answer to my question but thought it was a great question. She was an amazing friend and strong woman. Thankful for her knowledge she shared regarding cancer.
