Prayers are with the family if course because we know Miss Marshas soul is at peace! If her greatest testimony is how loving and caring her daughter Tammy Griffin Rice is and her family who I know well and I'm sure this as also applies to her son and his family as well, gives me a sense of her purpose and how her life has been a blessing to so many of us!! Love you a d prayers for peace!
