    Marshall will be sorely missed! Loved by everyone! I never knew anyone to say an unkind word about this wonderful man, father, neighbor, friend, colleague! A life-long friend to many…to include me and my family! My daddy and moma Loved! Loved! Loved! Marshall! He was always there for us in any season of life. My daddy asked for Marshall when my moma passed. And of course Marshall was right there at the table with my daddy drinking coffee and consoling my aged father. How he would come so quickly when daddy asked for him.. I will never know! He was a man of integrity, respect, a God fearing man and we loved him dearly! Thank you Marshall! “Well done.. good and faithful servant!”

    A very famous baseball player came to my room one night after I got word that my older brother had passed away. I was working as a Trainer for the New York Yankees at the time and never ever thought that BOBBY RICHARDSON the MVP of the 1961 world series would even think of me. But there he was holding my hand and crying his heart out for me and my family. Do you have the picture that you and I took together this morning he said. As he signed the picture he also wrote this , PROVERBS 3 verses 5,6 PLEASE read these words. I love you and Marshall dearly Susan…..AND Always will. See you soon. BOBBY GENUNG SR

    To my precious friend Susan, My heart is breaking for you, because I know that feeling of shock & loss that you are going through! There is nothing like it! No, Nothing! I wish I were there with you, to put my arms around you to let you know how very, very sorry I am.& how much I truly love you. I have been sitting here with my bible, asking God to give me the right scripture to say to you…… He is giving me..1 Cor. 15:51 “Behold, I tell you a mystery, we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed…in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye………….”…..”Jesus says…let not your heart be troubled nor let it be fearful…. These things I have spoken to you so that in ME you may have PEACE.. In the world you have tribulation, but take COURAGE, for I have OVERCOME the WORLD”…….Roll your cares on HIM, for HE cares for you ! (Susan, I LOVED the video of Marshall’s life). You two were so blessed!…….My Prayers Continue! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH…. VICKIE CROW EELLS
