Sympathies message

  1. Marj was one of the kindest and most generous souls I have ever met; and the toughest. She instantly welcomed me into their circle as well as her home during the early days of my 25 year career. I recall a time when LeAllen and I were transferred from Pittsburgh, PA to Phoenix, AZ and we had to drive cross country with two horses and two dogs in a three vehicle convoy. One night we had trouble finding a hotel that would allow us to set up temp pens for the horses and allow dogs. Marj recommended we find a field and set up for the night before a storm hit and sleep under the trucks to keep dry. Growing up in the city one can imagine the feelings her recommendations brought on. To our relief, we found a hotel, but it only one bed and a sofa. Marj, ever so giving recommended LeAllen and I share the bed since we were bigger than her and she would take the sofa. In those days I was only 6’5″ 230 lbs. We agreed (she did not) that she should take the bed with her son and I’d take the sofa built for regular sized humans. We were able to stand firm to that decision following much debate concerning why her comfort was our priority. We arrived on time and without issue. Then I met Larry; one of my best road trips ever!
