Not sure what to say?

You are in so many of the memories I have from middle through high school. How many times we talked in class, on the school bus and at each others' houses!

Your light will continue to shine in the memories of your family and friends. My prayers go out to your family. Tammy Rucker-Wiley c/o 93 Page High School (Rocky Mount, NC)

My thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Mareka who left this world too early.

To Kathy and all of Mareka's family.
You have our thoughts and prayers. I remember well the night she arrived at Ohare from Korea as a baby. I was there to meet her; it seems like yesterday. Laurie and I extend our heartfelt sympathies to all the family.

We are sorry for your loss.
Tia Hyre, Bethany Community Middle School
