Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.
I am Marlene, an artist, a sometimes wannabe writer, and wife to a loving, sensitive Pastor. Most of you know me as *Marcie.* Steve is my second marriage (his too, we were both widowed). Melanoma took my first husband, and muscular dystrophy, my only child. Stephen shares his four loving children and 7 beautiful grandchildren with me. I call them *the magnificent seven!* We are a blended family that works and they give me such joy. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July so this upcoming year will be a challenge. This is a time when I will need my family and friends and I think I am solid, because mine are awesome.
