Marcia Wallace quotes :
I'm in awe of people out there who deal with Alzheimer's, because they have to deal with death 10 times over, year after year.Marcia Wallace
I don't know what religious people do. I kind of wished I'd been a Christian with the blind faith that God is doing the right thing. As a Buddhist, you feel like you have more control over the situation, and that you can change your karma.Marcia Wallace
I think illness is a family journey, no matter what the outcome. Everybody has to be allowed to process it and mourn and deal with it in their own way.Marcia Wallace
