    Glen & Family–
    Marsha was the light in the room and so gosh darn funny. At our last scrapbooking retreat, she made us laugh out loud numerous times with her stories and witty humor. It was always our pleasure to have her come and create with us and then share a glass of wine. She will be missed in spades by her crafting community. I still have the buttons she gave me which will always stay in my craft room as a tribute to her. Sending hugs to Glen, we loved to see you bringing her to our events and the love you both shared.
