As a kind and gentle Great Uncle Babe Reece once told me, “Marcella was one courageous woman to come into that family when she did after your mother was killed!” You know what? He was spot on! May the Angels in heaven welcome you home! The Vanilla Coke’s we shared on our birthday’s will never be forgotten! Your loving adopted son, Marty!
