I cried for weeks when I heard about this absolutely loving and kind woman. I am in the medical profession; my niece is a deputy and had worked closely in the past with Deputy Marshall. I truly miss her and the care and dedication that she provided to her coworkers, as well as any of the people she came across. I know she showed compassion even to the worst of criminals. I did not know her, but I still miss her. I know her loss has caused a hole in many people' hearts.
