Not sure what to say?

Much love to you, Victoria. I am so, so sorry. I know what a shining light your marriage was. I pray that you feel that light forever.

I send my heartfelt sympathy to you and all of Marshal's family.
Sincerely and with caring thoughts, Lisa

Marshall Full of life and stories. He definitely made footprints in the Houston Art community. His dedication to his profession and the Arts is commendable during this "here today gone tomorrow" environment we find ourselves living in today. Thanks for the memories John and Mary Ann Dalton

Dear Victoria, I am so sad to read this news. You and Marshall were so kind to me when I first arrived back in Texas in 2004. I am very sorry we have lost touch. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Love, Kathleen ( Huggins) Clarke

SO, so sorry to learn of his passing. Such a gift he was for Houston and art enthusiasts everywhere.

Marshal was a fun, generous, supportive being that fed and impacted many. His light brought many smiles, increased the confidence of Houston's artists, and raised the spirits of those he encountered.

He will remain 39 forever in our hearts.

Much love to Victoria and his loved ones.

Marshall was so kind when me and some other Core Fellows were stuck w no electricity from a hurricane... he cooked all the redfish from the freezer and a turkey too... we did not starve!
I will remember his warmth and generosity. Sending love and condolences to Victoria and his family.

I know in my heart that man is good, that what is right will always eventually triumph and there is purpose and worth to each and every life. -- These words by a former President reflect in many ways, I think, Marshall's approach to life.

I know that Marshall recognized the good and purpose in the lives of those he touched. And likewise, there was so much wisdom, goodness, purpose and worth to the life he led.

What a marvelous legacy Marshall leaves.
