Dear Ken and family- I am so saddened to hear of the loss of Marcia. She was such a funny, sweet and lovely person. I have so many wonderful memories of working with her at the Carson Center, and hearing all of her stories of her family. She was an amazing woman. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. With love- Amy Ingraham

Dear Ken and Family, I have so many fond memories of playing Pitch with Marcia, Carole and Joan between classes at Bay Path. I had the blessing of having Marcia as a roommate when we worked for the Department of the Navy. We lived paycheck to paycheck and didn´t have a car. We were two naive country bumpkins. One night after dark we were in Washington waiting for a bus when a guy stopped and told us we were in a bad section of town. He said he would take us home. Without a thought we got into the car. God was watching over us. He did take us home. Ken , remember your visits and sleeping in the closet on the cot. I love that wonderful loving girl. I am so sorry for your loss. Love, Beth Tatto

Rest In Peace my Sweet and Loving Friend ! We´ve enjoyed Many wonderful memories together as Friends, and as part of the Carson Center "Work Family" through lots of laughter and through tears....(Graduations, showers, Weddings, divorces, sicknesses, new grandbabies, even deaths....) we held each other together! Thank you for introducing me to Yoga....at 78 I´m STILL practicing it today....best gift ever ! However, I never did follow through on our hysterical Tai Chi classes. So sad our friendship got "lost" after you retired....I´ve missed you ! God Bless You, and your Loving Family....´Til we meet Again !! Love, Bette

Dear Ken and Family, I was a good friend of Marcia's for many years at the Carson Center. It was always a wonder of what would happen going into work day by day between the fun and what to have for lunch. Never a dull moment. Your home was always open especially the picnic when we were all invited for a great day with Ken cooking and being Captain of your boat while Marcia always being the best hostess. Although we had lost contact she was always in my mind and now she will always be in my heart. Rest in peace my Friend. Love Marilyn McLean
