    I love you Marci so much!!!! I have enjoyed all our laughs and conversations and phone calls over the last 4 years. It’s always good to have someone to be able to talk to and chat with even if it’s about absolutely nothing. We have laughed until we cried and even stood strong for each other in hard times. The mold was broken when god gave you this small amount of time here and I’m glad it was our family he gave you to. Now we must give you back to him. So soar high my dear cousin/friend and tell grandma and grandpa all about this crazy world and that we love them. ♥
