Karen and family,
Carol and I are deeply saddened by Dr Douglas passing. He and you had become dear friends when carol and I needed it. Carol and I will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. Dr D was a wonderful counselor and neither Carol nor myself would be where we are today but for Dr D.

Karen, Marvin and you walked with me through my darkest days. I will be eternally grateful. Marvin loved, guided, comforted, and brought healing to God’s children. He truly did the Master’s work. What a legacy of faith and service! May God hold you close and bring comfort and peace to you and your family. Much love!

Karen,
You two were such a significant part of my life and that of my family. I wish now we had squeezed in one more lunch. He was a guiding light to me and to so many in my family who speak with love and affection for Dr. Marvin. He was a quiet but profound influence to everyone he touched. I will miss him greatly. His value to those he loved is immeasurable.

I will never forget the way you read a Night Before Christmas, the rides on your bike or the grumbling growls that made us giggle before bedtime. I remember you standing behind the pulpit and listening to you deliver the sermons on those Sundays we had come to visit. You came when I needed you and held my hand. I love you grandpa-
