It takes special people to do special things. Special people know how to take a bad experience and turn it into something good not just for themselves but for others also. Thats exactly what Mrs Bristo did. We might not of had the Disability Act without her accident her persistence and her courage. We thank her for that. To Mrs Bristos husband and her children I offer my sincere condolences. May God continue to be with the family.

I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family for the loss of your loved one, who will be remembered for her perseverance for non discrimination against disabled ones and also making history. May you find strength and comfort in God during this time of mourning.

Marca/Marcia was my cousin. I hadn't seen her since we were 15 but we kept in touch sporadically. Some of the best times of my childhood were at the farm in Castleton. The city cousin with the country cousin. I'm so sorry your time here was short. You will be missed by so many...

Marca was one of a kind. She was the bravest woman I knew. She tooled around downtown Chicago in her wheelchair like it was nothing. She was never afraid to be hit by cars as far as I could tell - she just went around and did her business. It was a gift to know Marca. I am very proud to call her my friend. I think about her every day and all the accomplishments she gave to the world.
