Am so sorry to hear of Marcia's passing.  She and I went to U of M together in Munich.  To say we had a blast was an understatement.  At one point in her life there she almost became (honestly) an Arab princess.  Needles to say, familial interference stopped that.  We went thru a lot together.  I saw her several times later when she came to Phoenix to judge Pygmy Goat competitions at the County Fairs.  She was a certified Pygmy Goat Judge and travelled all over the country judging them!!  Missed her very dry witt and "Smoky Joe voice".  R.I.P. lovey.
