Marilyn & Ron, we are so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom, she was a great lady and always had a smile on her face. 100 years old that is amazing. Thoughts and prayers are with you both.

My parents, Jane and George Somnitz and I have fond memories of Marcia from over 40 years ago with The Speigleaires and Avant Garde Drums and Bugle Corps. A wonderful woman. Her family is in our prayers.
