“I feel as if I had known Marvin all my life. He was that kind of a person. We have many fond memories of our trips to the farm, and the time he and Jana came out here. I especiall remember stopping by shortly after he had knee replacement surgery. I would have expected to find him either in bed or in a reclining chair. NOPE... He was in the barn pulling nails out of the old barn that had been taken down! Amazing .. He was almost impossible to beat in Dominos. Our thoughts are with you..”
