Art and I were talking about Marcelle two days ago! I can't believe it has been a year. She was a constant star in a matrix of remarkable friends of the family. I hope the family is doing well with her passing.

I am keeping Marcelle's family and friends in my heart and prayers at we near the anniversary of her passing, a time of loving remembrance. The hope, creativity, and joy you offer to others throughout your lives honor her, a beautiful tribute.

Marcelle was a wonderful constant in my many years of visiting Charleston. I met her and Max the very first time I was there to meet my own future in-laws and thoroughly enjoyed them both. At Bishop Gadsden, no visit was complete without Marcelle and her always warm and positive greetings.

I send love to the entire family.

My deepest condolences upon the passing of this amazing woman. Mrs. Furchgott was a leader and gentle guide to so many. I can still her her voice. From the time she and Max took my engagement photo when I was 21 to the years I was also a docent at the Gibbes, I enjoyed her amazing spirit. May you be comforted by the knowledge that her presence in our world was a shining light.

David, I remember your mother with grace and warmth when I was young and went to their studio. In my dining room. I look up and see a lovely photo in shadow box they did when I was 16. It is a loving memory. I did not know where your path had taken you but hope you and your siblings are doing well. Your Mother's kind words and warm smile will always be a loving memory for me. With prayers, Rosalyn Kramer
