  1. Dear Marshall Family: My name is Janet Marlatt (Sturdevant). I was one of 6 people who would get together when I would be in town from Arizona. We had a camaraderie that was so unique. It was as if none of us had been separated, and we talked with such great ease and joy. I know Dorothy Kneram and Carol Barber were going to try and get together with Harriet this year. Harriet and I spoke on the phone a while back. Your mother was a lovely woman and was very concerned with the Lord’s work. My Deepest Sympathy.

  2. I am so saddened to see this. I kept the directions to see you all, but always had something else to do. We take for granted, that there will always be next week, but it has happened over and over again. I don’t always look at the news on line, and just read this. I’m so sorry to miss the services, as I loved Aunt Harriet, and you all for that matter. Our prayers that you all find comfort, and know that’s she’s catching up with the rest of the family.
