  1. I didn’t get to know Marcus like I wanted to , I probably never would have but then he never would’ve called me “that jewelry lady“ , and that’s all I was until I was blessed to walk in one day to see Sheri ( my dear Sherry, my friend ) and there was Marcus and I got to meet him and get a hug. When is that up I was like “that’s a tall man“ but there was so much more to him than that , he had to have that big bodied care around that big heart that hug, I’ll always remember that because he started to give me a little slack after that , that’s a good thing ! a good memory and I’m sure they are are going to be many more posted here , and those that you are holding in your hearts forever.
