My sympathy to Marietta's family -- she was a classmate of mine at Taylorville High School, and always had a smile on her face and a cherry attitude for everyone.

I was so saddened to hear of the passing of my dear friend Marietta, my heart goes out to her family and friends. What a wonderful loving person, always a joy to be around, always a smile and a laugh when you were with her. I am so sad I did not get to say my final goodbyes to you Marietta, it was my honor to call you my friend. You were there for me when I needed you. You made a difference in my life and for that I will always be eternally grateful. I will cherish the memories and keep you close to my heart. Rest In Peace my friend, till we meet again!
