I will always remember Marvin (Bunky) as such a bright spirit when we were growing up. I can still hear his laugh when he talked me into stepping barefoot into my first warm cow patty and the time he showed up for our family reunion with boxes of Frito-Lay products. We were the hit of the neighborhood that week. When you don't see someone for a number of years, they always stay young in your heart. My thoughts are with you all.

It was a joy to get to know you and Marv these last few months. I am so sorry that his death happened so quickly but you made the most of each day you had. I never knew where the two of you might show up!
I will remember you always. You and the family are in my prayers.
