    Linda, Horace, & family, So sorry for your loss, praying for comfort and prayers for you all. I remember Marsha even though she was 2 years a head of us in school. She was a very pretty young lady in school and she continued to be a beauty as she grew older. Again I offer my condolences to all of you.

    I am so sorry to hear of Marsha’s passing. We graduated together and she was always lovely to me. Since I was only at WHS for two years ( came in my junior year) Marsha was very welcoming to me. I know you will miss her, Linda but the Lord will watch over her and He will comfort you and her entire family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. With love and prayers, Lilian East
