    Marvin’s passing is a big loss for all of us. With so many good things to say about cousin Marvin, I can only say that he really was an awesome, wonderful force in our lives. Never again being able to pick up the phone and call Marvin is something I know I’ll always find very difficult to live with. My condolences to all family and friends who have suffered our profound loss. Cousin Gary
