Uncle Harold (Harry), sometimes with such a large family we don't get to know each other as well we probably should. That said, I'm grateful for the time that we've shared getting to know each other as adults as well as the adventures we've shared as band chaperones. You and Marcia will always have a special place in my heart. To the entire family, Pat and I are saddened to learn of Marcia's passing. Be well, stay strong.

When I think about the safe and loving neighborhood that I grew up in , I cannot help but think of Marcia. She offered more than a haircut to anyone who entered her salon. Sending much love and peace to her family.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the Lescarbeau family, with our deepest condolences. Marcia did my Mothers hair for years and Marcia was so good to her during her years with Alzheimer's. I can't say enough about her, she was a sweetheart and will be sadly missed.
Harry, she will still be riding around with you with the top down and enjoying those times.

Jody and Joy,
So sorry for the loss of your Mother.
from: Pat Bulletton: 11-24-2022

Harry and Family, Please accept my sincere condolences on Marcias passing. Although we haven't been in contact for years I still consider her to be a dear friend with so many memories. One in particular always comes to mind when we were at LaBaron. A nice lady came in for a perm that we both did. When she arrived she had a beautiful widow's peak. When she left she didn't! We laughed about that for years!! I hope all of you have many memories that you can share and smile about. RIP my friend. Nancy (Tatro) Banas
