On lilac bound
I found a friend,
A caterpillar
On a branch.
I felt his oneness
With my world
And thought myself
A butterfly.

"Marcia was my godmother since I was a little girl (and Floyd my godfather). They were the most perfect godparents I could have ever hoped for. The years since Floyd passed I talked to Marcia on the phone nearly weekly, visiting for hours. It was wonderful. I did get to visit Marcia and Floyd, when they met me in Long Beach somewhere around 2002. Such precious people whose lives touched mine in only positive ways."

We were all brothers and sisters.I have a letter that Marcia sent me at a time when I was depressed that always cheers me up.Say hello to all our loved ones that have gone before-love you- little melba"

"Although she was my mother-in-law, she feel more like a mother to me and was always there to provide love and support.  I saw her a few years ago when passing through California.  She was making the most of it, but the loss of Floyd was evident.  I hope they are now reunited.  I will miss her.  My best wishes to Bryan and the rest of the family...."

"From Colleen Norton Taylor:
I loved Marcia like a sister and I will surely miss our phone calls but I have wonderful memories old and new that will always be with me.  I know we will be united someday and that will be a happy reunion.  Best wishes to the family.  Love you all, Colleen"

"To my most beloved family: Our loss is deeply felt. I am so sorry. I hope that Marcia is more comfortable now wherever she may be. She will be missed. I'm sorry I haven't been able to see her more in these last years. I wish you were having the memorial on a different day because I have plane tickets to visit Carol Lundquist, my dad's sister in Redding on the 13th. I'll be there in spirit."
