  1. Well, I guess I’m the only one of your friends that has not written in this memory book. I didn’t know it was here. So it’s almost been two years and I miss you like crazy. You were the best friend that I evere had. To Dee and Ron, I miss y’all too. Marla was a beautiful girl and I wish that we had more time together. I’m missing my bestie tonight. Wish you were here. I’ll see you though again, I’m sure of it. Love you with all my might!
    Love,
    Flea

  3. I wanted to send Marla’s family my thoughts and prayers. I just heard of Marla’s passing and I am shocked. A rush of old high school memories has come back to me. Good ones. Sending love to your family.

  4. I knew Marla when i lived in walsenburg colorado back in 1990 when i was 12, i got to spend a whole summer just hanging out with her at the motel her parents ran in Walsenburg,I moved away later that year but moved back in 1992 and attended the 8th grade class of Saint Marys Catholic School with her and also Freshmen and Sophomore year at John Mall High School.though over time i lost touch with her as childhood friends do sometimes,i remember her being one of the most genuine and heart warming people i have ever known,i haven’t spoken to her since sometime in 1994 after passing her in the hallways of our High School, but wish i had somehow in the last 16 years.,i am saddened,heartbroken and shocked beyond words or expression at the news of her passing.Marla was bright,cheerful, heartwarming and beautiful beyond anything else and and had an effervescence to her that made her a joy to be around.my heart and my prayers and most deepest and most sincere condolences go out to her husband and children,and to Ron and Dee and also mike and his wife.

    Rest it peace Marla,i have always and will always miss you.

    Sincerely

  5. Ron and Dee,
    I was in Colorado a few weeks ago. I visited Marla’s grave. I was the one who put the purple flower there. I like the flowers you planted and the lights. I’ve been thinking about all the times we had. Thinking of you and praying for you! Love, Jenny

  6. Marla was like my own. I loved her so very much. We had a lot of fun with our talks. She will be greatly missed and loved always. Love you all, take care and I know the arms of God will comfort you in your loss and sorrow.

  7. It was many years ago that I met your family, my Aunt & Uncle were family friends (Anita & Daryl Jacobs). I only spent a short time with you while visiting, but I think of the fun I had with your family quite often. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. May God help comfort and heal you.

  8. I am in total shock because I just heard the news. I cannot beleive this.
    Me and Marla were friends since Elementary School. We had alot of good times as kids. I am so sorry for your loss Dee, Ron and kids.May God Bless you and comfort you!

    Love Always,

  9. I want to send my love to Marla’s sons and family. She was a vibrant and wonderful woman and I will always miss her laughter and sweet smile. The world is a little less beautiful without her. She was a great friend, it seems like only yesterday that we were all having fun together. I will always cherish those good times.

  10. This may sound silly, but I’ve missed Marla for over 20 years already, but clearly I’ve never forgotten her. The last time I saw Marla before moving away was in 1989. The memories we made riding that 4wheeler will live on forever. I’ve tried unsuccessfully to contact her for many years. I now regret not trying harder. You should know that Marla touched my life and that of my sister to a degree that I will always remember and I am greatly saddened by her passing. Even though we were friends for a short time, I still relive the memories in my head and long to be back in those simpler days of being a kid with such a wonderful person who knew how to make every day better.

  11. Ron & Dee, We are truly sorry to hear about Marla. I (Paul) remember when I first met her – Krag brought her to dinner with me at the Texas Roadhouse in Pueblo almost ten years ago. She brought lots of cheer to my brother, Krag, and we will all really miss her. We’ll keep her in our good memories. Our hearts go out to you, and we wish you the healing of time…………..Paul & Melinda

  12. Preston and family…we are deeply sorry for your loss. You will be in our prayers. Marla..we just meet during soccer this past fall and I know from the short time we talked you will be deeply missed by all those that knew you!!

I have not seen you in a long time Marla, but I will carry the memories and you and your family with me always. Dee, Ron, Mike and the boys, I am so very sorry for your loss. Marla, we will love and miss you always.

  17. I didn’t know you well Marla but I could see your kind spirit in your eyes. You will be so missed by your boys and Dee. I’ll be keeping them in my prayers.

  18. Sometimes the best and most wonderful people are in our lives for such a brief period of time and we will never have an understanding of why. We must just praise God that He keeps His promises and some day we will be able to enjoy being together with them forever in Heaven. I cherish this promise and especially today for Ty and Preston, Ron and Dee, Michael and Yvette, Michael, Dylan and Bayly. Know that my prayers are with all of you as well as my love and appreciation for your family. May your happy memories and God’s Love and His Angels hold you with tender comfort. Much Love, Linda (Nursery Director at Central Christian).

  20. My wife Vylla) and I will remember Marla as a busy, industrious person. She always had a cheery greeting for us and we love her two boys. We extend our most sincere condolences – Paul & Vylla Krutak

  21. To my beautiful, charming, intelligent, funny, and dear friend: I am devastated to see you go and so very sorry that these past few years,I have been too absorbed in my own life to make time for you. Afterall, you were always there for me when I needed a laugh, hug, a babysitter, or just someone to listen.
    Shyanne and I will never forget you teaching her how to do a backbend. We still laugh out loud about that. You and Preston taught Corban everything there was to know about hermit crabs and where to hunt for salamanders. Ha Ha..Remember? Thank you for making some wonderful memories for my kids.
    Your upbeat personality, positive attitude through the hard times, and love for your family were great examples for us all.
    See you again some day, my friend. We love you.

  22. You will be missed my sweet one. You always took time to tell me you loved me, always. That meant a lot to me. You will be truly missed by Coye & I. The last few years we never were able to converse a lot, we we were so busy with our lives. But that’s O.K. We will have forever to do that in paradise. See you there pretty girl.
