Marzell was a great person. As a co-worker, she was my go to person to fix problems. Marzell performed the work of three employees and did it with a smile. she could handle more work than any person should have to handle. As a person she was even better. she had a great outlook on life. she tried to do the best and loved her kids. Marvell talked about her kids often and loved them dearly. I will truly miss Marzell and the world has lost a great person. if only we had a little bit of her personality in us, the world would be a better place. I will miss you, Marzell and think about you often.

My deepest sympathy to Marzell's family. She will be missed.
God has promised to bring an end to sickness and death. There
will also be a resurrection of those in his memory. These
wonderful promises are stated in the Bible at Revelation 21:3,4
and John 5:28,29. I hope these promises will provide hope
and comfort for you.
