On behalf of my whole family, including my mother, Florence Wise, please accept our sincere condolences. Marcie and Flo had known each other since Schenley HS days and were very dear to each other. They got reacquainted in their golden years playing bridge and living in apts. near Negley and Centre Aves. I know Marcie's friendship meant so much to my mother and we loved seeing both of them together. May her memory be a blessing to you.
