ForeverMissed

This memorial website was created in memory of our beloved Marcia Burton Campbell Hooker, 61, born on November 18, 1952 and prematurely passed away to heaven on January 28, 2014. We will remember and love her forever. Some snippets of Marcia's influence on her husband's music and coaching him in his musical compositions are shared here.  Marcia was not only a beautiful person and wonderful mother she played guitar and had a brilliant executive career as an expert underwriter in the Life Insurance Industry for over 38 years.

My Dearest Marcia. After 3 years, time does not heal the hurt from loss of my loved one. I pray each week at Mass that you are in peace in heaven and happy with my parents and grandparents but am thinking about all of you every day in my mind and soul. Somehow, I feel all of you are in heaven and hear those payers from my heart.

Marcia, I only had a couple years to get to know you and within that time I could see that you are so many things, but overall just a wonderful person and you are missed by everyone.
Happy Birthday Marcia.

You will be missed greatly. The group of us always had fun on visits and business trips. You should be proud of Rich keeping your legacy alive. .
Posted by Richard Hooker on January 28, 2015
My heart is so broken and a day never goes by that I do not think about you and my love for you. Most days are with tears for me still and I will never stop loving you. I miss you so much after this short year and with sadness being a daily reminder while thinking about you or sharing one of your precious memories here around the home. I can only carry your license to kiss every day wherever I go but i pretend it is really you and that you can see and hear me. I keep your rooms the way you have left them and helps give me comfort that you are still here.
Posted by Barbara Michaud on November 21, 2014
My dear and loving friend, Marcia. You will forever be an inspiration and positive influence in my life. You are truly missed but never forgotten. Love you and know that you made a difference in so many of our lives. God bless you, our angel.

It was very nice to meet you both when we were finding your home in Milford, MA for your relocation to this area. I only knew Marcia for a short period of time, but she was a great lady, and now as I read through this memorial, apparently she was a fantastic musician as well! May she rest in peace and keep the angels in Heaven hopping with her music. :o)
Posted by Rich Hooker on June 8, 2014
I will always miss you Marcia
Your guidance, wisdom and
Advice will always inspire me.
I will always be so grateful for
What you did to save me and
My children and for keeping my
Family together. You will always
Be loved and mised by myself
Chris and kailyn and we will
Always be forever thankful.
I love you Marcia.

Rich, may Marcia rest in peace, God Bless you and your family, I'm sure she will always be your special guardian angel.
Posted by Phil Nomore on June 1, 2014
Rich, this is a wonderful labor of love for Marcia. I hope that it has helped you in the healing process. That picture of her and Anne in the sun in NC captures them both so well, and it is the way that we will both forever remember her. The music is very well done.

Warmly,
Anne and Marc

Marcia I have never met you but I wish I did. Reading these tributes I know you are an amazing person. The music you helped Rich compose is wonderful.
Posted by Andy Kub on May 30, 2014
Rest peacefully Marcia. One day we will all meet again!
Posted by Thomas Nelson on May 30, 2014
Marcia, we had some great times bouncing around the Caribbean together a couple of times and someday we will all be sailing together again, but as nice as our previous Cruise line was, our future Liner will put it to shame. When we cruise again we will be navigating through Heaven and our captain is our Christ. RIP my friend, save Brenda and I a seat at your table, because that is where we want to be seated.
Posted by Joseph Pecorello on May 20, 2014
Marcia must be very happy to know how much she is loved. I'm sure she is looking down from heaven and smiling at you, Richard. God bless...

my sad Valentine's day without my valentine

Shared by Richard Hooker on February 15, 2015

I am sorry that I could not fit all 20 valentine cards on one scan but only a few recent ones.  I hope you like those on your day. 
Even with time gone by I am without what I am mostly used to, coming home each day, seeing your happy smile and instead now saying a prayer for you and your eternal happiness with God.   Not a day goes by without a tear or sorrow that there maybe was something more that I could have done; maybe retire a couple of years ago to spend more time with you or work from home more often.  Still, the home is mostly the way you like [left] it and gives me a sense of security that you are with me.
I have not gotten flowers, since, as those were always for you and hope to bring a smile to your face in that I have save thousands of dollars in the last year :)
I love you so much and will always.  This time (382 days) has not taken away the intensity of my love, still, for you my darling, today on Valentine's Day, tomorrow, and forever.  As I run my near 2 miles each day on the treadmill after work I have your favorite pictures of us to look at and and pretend that you can see and hear me from your license picture which I carry with me wherever I go.
