Marsha, I loved you for many reasons. You were a strong girl. We  walked a dark path together. We didn't always see eye to eye but you gained my respect. I believe I gained yours. You were a great support to me. I admired your strength and courage.  Our grand daughters were born days apart. We shared a lot. I will never forget you dear girlfriend. I love you. Prayers for Jack & family.. I

Marsh, I loved you for the genuine person you were. You were always honest with me, and you never sugar coated your remarks for fear of hurting me. Sometimes we locked horns, but for the most part our friendship endured because we shared so many interests and values. I will miss our daily chats which ended in February 2016 when you first fell ill.  RIP, Marsh....

I had the privilege of representing Marsha about  25+ years ago when she was run over by a bus in San Francisco. Almost every bone in her body was broken and she  greatly.suffered from the trauma of the accident .
I was so impressed by her courage and conviction in overcoming the effects of the accident. As some of you may know she wrote a personal book about the accident.

Fond memories of Marsha in High School, spending afternoons together talking about sewing crafts and friends.  Also remembering my visit back to the Bay Area 10 years ago, when she and
sister Nicky and I took a trip to SF and went shopping in the Ferry building.  It was a great time, with 2 great and dear friends!  Love you Marsha, and in my heart!  Barbara
