  1. Dan, Bruce, Greg, and Lynn,
    I was so sorry to hear about cousin Phil. I have such good memories of him (as I do all of you). He was so full of life and energy and humor. Such a mischievous smile–and he still has it in that photo! Thinking of you today, and of Phillip. So sad. Love, Mari (and Jim)

  2. Dear Marich Family
    Paul & I are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Phill. I will always remember meeting Phil at Greg and Shari’s parties. He was sweet, friendly, and very funny.
    Our hearts go out to all of you at this sad time
    Pam & Paul

  4. I am sadden in the passing of Phil, I knew him for such a little time. Met Phil in Ca. @ Steve Hervatine’s place at a party. He played his guitar all afternoon! He was a Fun person. Later on, i found him to have a very LOVing soul. God bless him and his family. He was very talented.

  5. To the Marich Family,

    You have my deepest sympathy in the loss of Philip. I can still remember him as a little boy running around the backyards of Wampum.

  6. Bruce and Diane and family,

    My dad and I saw the obituary this week of Bruce’s brother. We are so sorry for your loss.

  7. To the Marich family, I want to personal send my condolences. I did not know Mr. Marich, but I do know what it is like to loose someone you love to a similar accident. You see my mom was crushed by a slab of granite almost 3 years ago while she was at work. She was a wonderful person who I was very blessed to be close too. My purpose for writing you is to let you know that you are not alone and also that God can see you through your loss. I miss my mom more than I could ever say. I pray for peace for your family and the others that were affected! God bless!

  8. I miss Willie every day even 6 years later. Willie was my best friend and I won’t have another.. Friend like him. He was one of a kind. I can’t even golf any more, it’s not any fun without Willie. I call him Willie because that was the way he introduced himself to me. He said his mom called him that. We used to have the annual Jane marich Bettegene Colton memorial tourñament every year on mother’s day williee said mom’s fay and Superbowl Sunday were the two best Sundays to golf every year. And he was right.
