Missing Marcie

Today and tomorrow we bid farewell to our friend and classmate Marcie Rankins; the services are at St. Jude’s in Bossier, which she served so well as Director of Religious Education. Our sadness at her sudden death is lightened by the certainty that she’s welcomed heartily to  the communion of saints. May her family take comfort in God’s loving embrace.

We shall miss Marcie’s wisdom and insights, especially in group discussion. Don’t you know she’s getting some profound questions answered! Send some of your newfound wisdom our way, Marcie, and pray for us …

Our instructors Jim McGill and Gene Giuliano join us in paying tribute.

“We honor Marcie by recalling her steady determination, her wry intelligence and her distinctively gentle way of being a friend, a co-worker and a truly good person. May she rest in peace.”~ Jim McGill

“My prayer is that strength can be found in each other and of course in the One from whom all love and strength comes. I join with you in mourning, in grieving, and in joyful hope and confidence in the happiness that is Marcie’s.”~ Gene Giuliano
