Judy and I wanted to be with you today, but were unable to arrange that. We know you will miss Marvin, but we feel his struggles are over.

You both were a big part of our lives when we were in Caldwell. We remember the dinners we had together, and the fellowship, many times, in your home. Wish it was possible to do it all over again. We know there is something far better that awaits us! We all look forward to that time when we can fellowship for as long as we desire!

We love you and are praying for you!
