Our love and sympathy to all of you. We will always have the wonderful memory of "Miss Marvin" as our son, Joey, named her 27 years ago. Miss Marvin asked him in her Sunday school class what his favorite hymns were to which he replied, "Jesus Loves Me" and "Homegrown Tomatoes." Bless you!

Ray and family, I met Margaret during my college practice working with her at Bostwick with the Special Needs program. She was always a patient and giving lady. Very gracious and always extended a hand to help. Our paths crossed after that only occasionally but we enjoyed visiting at those times. Hope these kind remembrances help your healing in time.

I was so sorry to hear about Mrs. Marchman. When Tom and I were working at GTCHS, we enjoyed selling football tickets on Friday nights with Mr. and Mrs. Marchman. They were such a cute, funny couple. She was a happy, Christian woman and I'm know you'll miss her very much. May God give you comfort at this sad time. Kay Ellenberg McClendon
