Marc’s family would like to extend heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Mr. Ron Baerg of Valley Funeral Home and Pastor Warren Fulmore of the Alliance Church for their kindness and valued assistance with all of the arrangements, as well as to Marilyn Massey, pianist, and Lynn Robson and friends for the incredible feast prepared for after the service (grandpa would tell you to ‘hang up your shingle’).

Special thanks to Len & Linda Snyder for the Beautiful box.

There are no words or hugs big enough to thank all of the incredible people who have displayed such acts of warmth and kindness evidenced through phone calls, visits, meals, baking, flowers, etc.

This will never be forgotten, as is so with our

loving memories of Marc!
