    It is with sadness that received this from our cousin Rebecca Adams Blair.
    Marcia is my first cousin and haven’t seen her in many years, however thought of her from time to time. She was a very beautiful young girl and woman.

    I send love to her children and grandchildren with good thoughts of Marcia, her parents, brother and sister.

    In loving memory,

    God bless you Marcy, my dear cousin. We always had such a good time as kids and it was so much fun to come to your house in East Lansing. We were so lucky to have such a close family and to enjoy all the good times we had together.

    Lucky you, your suffering is over and now you are with Amy and Michelle, your Mom and Dad, Shirley and Jim and my parents, your Aunt Ione and Uncle Jack and all our aunts, uncles and cousins that are with you in heaven. Even though distance kept us apart, our hearts were always close. Rest in peace, Marcy.

    I do not have a fondest memory, cause all memories of Marcy are fond. I have not met Marcy prior to moving from Germany to Michigan. When my son Michael and I arrived at the airport she welcomed us with open arms and we were a part of the family right away. She has always been more like a mother rather that a mother-in-law and I miss her dearly. She will always be in my heart.

    I never had the privilege to meet Aunt Marcia. But my daughter Brenda Hodge loved her dearly. I know she will be greatly missed. My prayers are with the family.

    Marcy was a part of my life for about 40 years from running around together while in high school to childrens birthday parties, graduations, sharing grandchildren stories to laughing and crying together. Marcy and I had a lot of good times together and she will be missed by all who knew her and loved her. She cared about other people and always had time to give to her family. We will always remember Marcy and the times we shared. We continue to keep all of her family in our thoughts and prayers. So long to a wonderful lady who now is in a better place without pain and worry. We love you Marcy!

    My fondest memory of Marcy is when I first moved to Cornell from the Milwaukee area and did not have any family or know anyone there. My son, Tony, introduced me to Marcy through Kevin Jr and we became friends. She helped me through a rough time in my life found that we had a lot in common. She was the one who pushed me into looking for a job to help fill some of my time. I learned a lot from her about gardening, we enjoyed doing crafts together and had a lot of laughs. I thought of her often after we moved back to Wisconsin 10 years ago, and I know that her enthusiasm for life will be terribly missed.

    My fondest memories of you, Aunt Macy, it’s so hard to pick just one. Your strength, your love of family, your commitment to family, your creative talents, they are all so special. I think what I will
    cherish the most is when we met up in Florida and I spent the night with you and Kevin. We were
    laying in bed and talking. I told you how now matter what happened, you would always be my Aunt, and you told me that you would cry, it would break your heart, if I ever stopped calling you Aunt Marcy.

    May you rest in peace in God’s Kingdom. You are greatly missed, and loved. We will never forget you…My peace is knowing that you are no longer in pain, and you are finally able to be with your girls again. Thank you Aunt Marcy for being such a great role model. I love you!
