Dear Deb , Wendy and family ,

It is with a heavy heart that I send this message .... Our deepest sympathy to all of you .... When I think of Uncle Marven , it is always with a smile ! Our summers in Miramichi were always enriched with our two favorite Uncles coming home for their yearly visit! We were the lucky ones because our homestead is where they always stayed , so that meant everyone , all Uncles , Aunts and cousins would gather there! We have so many fond memories of all the Gormans singing and dancing in our big kitchen ! A real Irish party! How they loved to come home and have a wonderful Salmon supper ! Their visits were always to short! They will always hold a special place in our hearts , Families are Forever . Marven was so kind and gentle , certainly a family trait they all encompassed ! Those days have passed now , and we are left with Beautiful memories and we keep those close in our hearts . They are so precious ! How I wish I could be with you all . We are there in spirit and love , and love lives on . Rest in peace Uncle Marven , you were one in a million !

Dear Brandon and Family: I am so very sorry to hear about your grandfather’s passing. I know how much you loved him by the story’s you used to tell me. Also, I’m sure he loved having you close to him the past while...
Thinking of you.
Lori.

I have many fond memories of Uncle Marv. As a young kid I remember he and my dad frequently talking about life on the farm in New Brunswick. It was a strong bond they had and I can understand why they both always said "I'm going home this summer" , never referring to it as New Brunswick.
I particularly remember Uncle Marv's love of boxing. He and I and my dad went to the Hamilton Forum to see George Chuvalo beat the tar out of some poor guy and we would also go to Hamilton Place together to see all the pay per view fights. On the buffet in my dining room I have a picture of my dad and Uncle Marv posing with New Brunswick boxer Yvonne Durrell (one of their sporting heroes). It is a wonderful photo-all three of them with great big grins enjoying a laugh. I smile whenever I look at it.

Debbie and Wendy, my thoughts are with you and your families.

Trudy, Noonan & Bob & I were so sorry to hear of the death of Uncle Marven and our thoughts & prayers are with all of you. We will be thinking of you on the 16th, wishing we could be there to take part in Uncle Marven's celebration of his life. We have many fond memories of Uncle Marven & Aunt Gladys that we will cherish. I loved the pictures that you shared always remembering how tall Uncle Marven was & it is so evident in the pictures that showed his long legs. Loved seeing the pictures of all of you & how happy & proud he looks with you. I am sure that he loved all those little ones that were gathered around him & that they, in turn, loved him. He was a very kind & gentle man and he will be missed.
