Marla was one of the best friends I ever had. Even extended miles could never dim our friendship. I look forward to seeing her again when my life journey here on earth is finished
To the family I offer my condolences and remind you that God loves you!

I am so very sorry to learn of Marla's passing.  I worked with her at the Urology Clinic, Greeley, CO and she was always so bubbly and made a room light up when she walked in.  Again, I'm sorry for your loss, she was way to young to pass on.
