Gerry, I’m sorry for your loss. You and I talked about Marcia and the boys many times but I never met her. Remember the time you two purchased the two flat and Marcia asked the tenants if they would be willing to pay more rent and then you had the property dispute over a few feet? It was just an accident that the obituary popped in front of me on my screen as I read the Tribune on line. We worked together over 30 years. Thanks for your friendship. I miss that.

My sincere condolences to the Ronspie Family. Marcia was close friends with my sister, Margaret, and I kept up with her through my sister and on FB. Oh how she loved her husband, children, grandchildren, and her extended family and friends. I know you will all miss her deeply. She brightened the entire world & made it a better place. Rest In Peace Dear, dear Marcia.
