Marvin and I enjoyed to talking to one another about politics. He was extremely knowledgeable about current events and the players in the political scene. He loved my Cousin Rosemary and considered himself fortunate that she accepted his marriage proposal.

"I Didn't Mind"
I didn't mind the load I was carrying, Just think of my illness as the cross I was bearing.
In spite of all I was going through, my deepest regret was leaving you.
But you must not worry and please don't fret, Today I'm rejoicing I haven't one regret.
God has prepared my mansion in the sky, farewell for now, but not goodbye.
Love and Hugs-
