Marcie was a true friend of mine. We worked together for CBM for a couple of years. She was so funny and fun to be around. She will be missed dearly. To the children my prayers and thoughts are with you at this difficult time. God Bless you and be with you.

My heart goes out to Marci's children & family. My daughter is a friend of Brooke's and spent lots of time at their house. Life was cut too short. God bless you all. She is your special angel watching over you now.

Even though we only met but a couple times, you still made an ever lasting impression on me. I remember your smile being bright enough to light the darkest of darks. You made an impression on me that there was nothing in this world that would ever get in your way of doing whatever you wanted to do. Listening to Linda Trautner speak of you I know she cares and loves you a great deal. Along with Linda, I know you will also be greatly missed by the rest of your classmates. I will always remember Linda bringing me along to one of your class reunion planning meetings (at a bar of course) and half of your class was there. Ha! You will be missed by many with heavy hearts, but you will never be forgotten Marci! Hope you’re getting all settled in your new place in Heaven. I pray Peace will once again fill our hearts as we prepare ourselves to once again be with Marci.

My deepest sympathies to all of you. Peg

My heart is heavy with the grief that all of you are going through right now. It is such a raw feeling. I know she is in a better place but sometimes that doesn't help with the hurt and loss you feel in your own hearts. And its ok to feel that way. I will miss Marci especially in the summer when she would be at the lake. It was always nice to talk to her and see the kids that she so loved. We went back a long way. What fun we had!! The only comforting thing I can say right now is she is with her maker. And she has a very special angel friend named Darlene that will show her the ropes. To the Janisch's, Lardy's, Bents My heartfelt sympathy and prayers go out to all of you. God Bless!!

I was so sadden to hear that Marci had passed away. I didn't even know that she had been sick and better yet that she didn't live all that far from me. I have wonderful memories of Marci and her fun lovin attitude she had. I can still picture that smile and laugh of her. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family. May you find the comfort in the lord during this difficult time.
