Marsha Shipman Obituary, Death – That was the very last thing in the world that I ever expected would ever take place in a million years or any other amount of time. I think I’ve just never really put much thought into what would happen in that situation at any time in my life. I will be eternally grateful to you for entrusting me with the responsibility of arranging the party that was held in honor of your sixtieth birthday and permitting me to take on the duty of putting it together
It would be an understatement to say that I am currently feeling a combination of melancholy and perplexity; in fact, articulating that would be more suitable than making the statement itself. That this would be the very last thing I would ever do for you was not a thought that ever crossed my mind; in fact, the concept never even occurred to me until now. Instead, I have always operated under the assumption that I will continue to do things for you in the years to come.
The party was held in honor of your milestone birthday, and I was able to take on the obligation of putting it together. You have helped me in this way in so many different ways, and I will never be able to fully convey how grateful I am to you. We spent a considerable amount of time talking about how important this was to both of us, as well as how significant it was to you, and it was a subject that we both found to be extremely interesting.
