  1. Riley and Family, I had the pleasure of working with Marsha at Washington Street for 2 short periods of time at that location. She will be sadly missed by the team there. As I am unable to attend the services on Monday, please know my heart is with your family during this time and the days ahead. With my sincere sympathy…

  2. Our hearts go out to you and your family with the loss of your dear loved one. There are no words to take away sadness when you lose someone you love. In our time of deepest need the tenderness of God is a refuge like no other. He alone understands our sorrows and draws near in love to wipe away our tears
    When my mother passed away, we found the resurrection hope very comforting.
    May the resurrection hope sustain you. A loved one lost can grieve the heart, and makes us yearn for tomorrow, when Jehovah will keep the promise he made of no pain, no death, no sorrow found at Revelation 21:4.

  3. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. Marsha was a very sweet and very kind lady. She sure will be missed.
