  1. I didn’t know that my best friend since high school had passed. I am now mourning her loss. Marcia and I were very close and shared many memories and experiences. I was her Maid of Honor at her wedding to Billy. We shared our birthdays, also. I am the twin sister of Michael Wallace. The three of us would celebrate together. Of course, life sent us in different directions, however, Marcia and I kept in touch. She was better at calling than connecting in Facebook. I want her children, Mia & Shawn, to know that their mother has always been remembered in my life. I reach out to Bill with many feelings of the past. I am there with all of you, in spirit. Marcia was an amazing person, which I will miss forever. My condolences also go to Charlotte (Shorty), at this time. May we find ourselves able to celebrate Marcia’s life.
