    So sorry I missed the visitation for Marcella. I’ve only known her since she joined us at Wesley Manor but admired her so much. She loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren so much. I’ll never forget Marin coming to visit and she loved my sparkly purple nails. So I gave Marcella some purple polish and sparkles to put on top for Marin and she loved telling me about how Marin loved the polish and what she was doing and what her little brother was doing. In sympathy and love, Jeanie
