  1. My dearest friend Patty, I’m sending my deepest heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. May God bless you now and always for who you are and for all you’ve done for those around you. You’re Dad will always be with you, he’ll always be a part of you. God keep him safe in his arms until you see him again.

  2. I didn’t know Mr. Marshall that well, but while he was in the hospital, I frequently took him around to his tests. I couldn’t help but get attached to him. He and his wife came to mean a lot to me because they were so appreciative of the work I did. They were always glad to see me, and treated me with great respect and dignity. I was always glad to see them. Mr. Marshall’s eyes would light up when I’d come in his room, and he’d hold my hand like he never wanted to let go. In those moments, I felt like I was making a difference in the world, even if it was just to one person. In those moments, he gave me a sense of purpose. I’m so sad that he’s gone, and I wish I had been there to say goodbye. Mr. Marshall was a sweet old man, and I’m going to miss him. I’ll never forget him. My thoughts are with him and his family, especially his wife. Sincerely, Katie Rice, Transporter, Parkview Medical Center

  3. Our heartfelt condolences to the Family. Ann,Richard,Ray,Don and Patty,please know you and your entire family are in my thoughts and prayers. May the memories of Dad’s love for life stay forever and the pain of his passing fade. May God Bless You. Love,Lene and Mark Mogavero
