To my Aunti Marce: There are so many words that I could use to describe you and the many ways that you touched my life. Generous, loving, funny, caring, and the list could go on. I have fond memories of our family reunion and when you pulled into the cabin’s drive and opened your trunk only to find cases and cases of Shasta (which was my favorite pop!!!). Or a Christmas when I wanted nothing but a baby doll and I got a sock monkey doll instead from my Aunti Marce and it became the most important thing in the world to me. I love sock monkies today because of that Christmas and always cherish the warmth I feel when I find one that looks so similar to the one that you gave me. The times that I would be able to physically see you and hug you and you would give me that hard pat on the back and say “ok”. Through it all, I may have loved that monkey or enjoyed that Shasta, but it was always so much better becase it was from you and the love and caring you put into each and everything you did every day for everyone else. And i know that you and Mom are up there in Heaven right now talking and picking at each other as you always did, and I know that you both are loving everying moment of it. God’s speed Auntie Marce and know that are forever in my heart. With all my love.
Auntie Marce was my God Mother, my Aunt and someone I loved more than words can ever be written here.
Marcie always had plenty of laughter, wasn’t afraid to set us six kids right, loved with a heart bigger than anyone else I know. Not one of us failed to recognize that if it weren’t for our Auntie Mouse the MacDonalds would not have had Christmas. She took the time to wrap even the smallest of gifts and always made that so special for us. I can remember the excitement of getting the boxes in the mail! How each of us didn’t dare touch those packages that said: DO NOT OPEN UNTIL CHRISTMAS. It made the anticipation of her sweet effort all the more precious to us. Even more important was the love she gave us. The joy and love she always brought with her is unforgettable.
Auntie Marcie, God’s heaven is such a sweeter place because you are there. You get to be close to St. Nick and the Baby Jesus for Christmas. We love you and will miss you!
