    Heartfelt prayers & condolences to all. We met Marcie when we all worked at Wheeling Downs. She always had a smile, a heart full of laughter & love. Christina married Bob & they eventually moved to New Hampshire. Their friendship became long distance. Marcie, my Mom, Cissi, my sister, Maxine & I were soon off to visit Christina & Bob in NH. Marcie was the best tour planner! She was prepared with her AAA Tour Book & weather radio that she listened to everyday. When a snowstorm hit the White Mountains in September, she quickly switched the day of that visit. As a result, we were safe & saw beautiful snow-capped mountains, peak fall foliage & lush greenery all in one picturesque view. Without Marcie & her careful planning we would not have been able to cover every state north of WV, enjoy so many attractions, experience loads of fun, laugh so much & create many unforgettable memories. It was definitely one of our top vacations! It still brings smiles & laughter to us. May your treasured memories bring you comfort & peace during this difficult time. She will always be with you as you honor her memory, her love & laughter. ♥ Love & Prayers
