Marsha and I were in a few classes together, but were never close. Yet, one day she and I happened to meet in the gym on the steps directly outside of Coach Walker's office. We chatted a moment and then, for reasons I'll never know, she pressed me to sing The Sweetheart Tree to her. She stood on a higher step, facing me with her left hand on the handrail. I looked into her face and sang the song. She seemed happy and we parted.

I remember Marsha Simmons, but I really did not know her. We may have chatted and laughed a couple of times, but we were not 'friends'.
However, Randy Gill's memory of her was very touching. The few sentences in his memory painted a whole picture for me: a mellow and gentle memory of someone he really didn't know, but had a special moment with.
Thanks for the moment, Randy.

Marsha was one of my very best friends. We lived in the same neighborhood and rode to school together each day.. she had a wonderful sense of fun... what memories! Her daughter Ashley lives in Concord with her husband and daughter Bella.  She is a wonderful mother and I know Marsha would be so proud of her!
