I offer my sincere condolences to Marla's family. I knew Marla from our days at Bradley High School and, in these later years, for whatever reason, have never "connected" the fact she was a sister to Austin! My apologies! I'd like to be at her service, but am singing for another funeral the same time in Clark. Please convey my sympathy to her family members. God bless each of you with His gifts of comfort and peace.

So sorry about Marla my heart goes out to all of you. I have many great memories growing up in Lily with Marla. Most recently at the Nursing Home. She would say "No, No, No" all the time and I told her one day that I was going to change it to "Yes, Yes, Yes" After a few times kidding around with her about it. She said "Cut that out" and we laughed and laughed!

Sending love and condolences to your family, especially Lori who has always supported my family. We love you and are thinking of you. May your heart be filled with memories of Marla as you celebrate her life and may you be comforted knowing she is at peace, in a better place, and whole again.
