    I have fond memories of childhood times spent with Marcia when she lived with her parents at the corner of 8th and Park Street and special memories of 4-H meetings at the home of Julia after they moved to West Laramie. Sincerest sympathy to Marcia's family at this sad time. May your memories be of comfort to you. Darlene (Degney) Hageman
