I was very sorry to learn of your loss. My condolences to you and all your family. I was Marsha's classmate at Franklin and I believe at Rocky. I ran into the two of you a year or two ago, but can't recall just when or where. In case you might not remember me I lived in the West End just a block up from the Arsenal Courts as a boy, and sometimes played with you and Paul Perkins and Norm McClellan and others, even though you were all a couple of years older than me. Please accept my sincere sympathy. May Marsha rest in peace. Sincerely, Bob Cook (Moline)

Brad and I join with so many who knew Marsha and the Nelson family in offering our deepest sympathy on her passing. Although it is little consolation right now, hopefully it brings some solace knowing that in her passing she is at peace.
Barb, so sorry to hear about your loss. May you reconnect with wonderful memories about your mother as a vibrant woman. You and your family are in my prayers.
