Marvin, I will miss you so much my dear friend. You were my boss at Memory Gardens and at Conestoga View so many years ago. And one day I seen your name on Facebook and I couldn't believe that I had found you again. We were so close and you drove to my house and anointed me and prayed for me, and at the hospital before my surgeries you were there as well. I will Miss you so much and I will see you soon. Don't forget about that dance you promised me in Heaven. Love you my dear friend.
