Marcia was ten years old when I arrived on the scene. We were sisters and roommates in our childhood home. We laughed, cried, argued, shared stories, secrets, hopes and dreams. I remember all of her first happenings car, boyfriend, high school graduation, cosmetology school, jobs, marriage, children and grandchildren born. Her greatest accomplishment in life was being a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother. There was most always a breakfast and evening meal cooked in the home and I mean some down home food!! Marcia loved her daughter Callie with all her heart. She insisted that she attend college and inserted her foot as needed to ensure she obtained her goals. On graduation day Marcia was beaming with pride. She lost a son shortly after his birth and endured that sorrow the rest of her life. I have no doubt her first night in heaven she rocked her baby boy to sleep. She was a make no bones about it person with a feisty side and if you crossed it you would hear about it. Marcia had a loving heart, and a kind soul. She was a good person, never caused a problem, minded her own business and loved her family. I am blessed to have shared my life joys and sorrows with her as a sister. RIP until we meet again.
