    Having known Marsha for over 20 years was a blessing. She always had kind words for me and made me smile. She will be missed.

    Marsha and I had so many fun times with Bible School crafts and “Stampin’ Up” cardmaking. She was a great friend of mine. I so enjoyed worshipping and serving the Lord with her at Whiteash Freewill Baptist Church. I loved her dearly and will miss her tremendously.

    Marsha and I go back to when we was fifteen years old. Tom took me to to meet her, little did we know it’d be a lifetime friendship. Married and hanging out together, cooking dinners together and camping Raising our children together only she stopped at two. LoL. We kinda drifted appart after my divorce and I moved to Fl for a few years. But coming back, she and Tom we’re at Whiteashe church where my brother was. I started going to church again So worshiping and taking part together again ! Oh how I will miss you my friend— I know your in a better place and suffering no more, In Jesus’s arms. But my selfish heart is breaking. I will miss you my friend !!!
