David, although we have never met, Marsha was one of our beloved classmates at St Mary's Catholic Grade School. 8 years together created a bond between all of us that continued on into high school and life. Vivacious, captivating, warm, outgoing, fun to be around, welcoming, clever and very intelligent are good descriptions of Marsha with her classmates. I have a heavy heart hearing about her passing. May God bless Marsha, and give you and your family peace in the days ahead. Bob Weber, Aurora, in Huntington Beach, CA
