    Marcia was a favorite client of mine while I worked in Home Health. I enjoyed our time together very much. We had a lot of laughs, and shared a lot of similar values. She was always thoughtful to inquire about my family, and I know she loved hers. She spoke of them often. My thoughts and prayers are with Britny and family.
