Carol and Family:

Our deepest sympathy goes to each and everyone. Marvin was truly a great friend and we will miss him. The hunting trips that Marvin and Bill went on was always so much fun for them. They always looked forward to them. The time we all went to southern Ohio on the motorcycles so they could show Carol and I where they hunted was truly a "TRIP" to remember. When we went to the World's Fair and camped together, what a fun time that was. The many rescue runs we made together will always be remembered. No greater freind could a person ask for.
