My condolences to Mary and family. The world has lost a wonderful and gracious friend, but the Kingdom of Heaven has gained one. I am still in shock after Mary's phone call informing me of Marvin's passing. I worked with Marvin at Kelly AFB in San Antonio beginning in 1994 and followed him and Mary to Oklahoma City where we worked together. I will miss him, but I know he is at peace and in a glorious place. R.I.P. my friend, I will never forget you.

LTC Alexander was my Angel and I am so thankful and grateful to God that he allowed me to cross his path and be in his presence. He had a heart for the loss, always had a kind word and a smile to share with everyone. LTC Marvin is now at home with his Heavenly Father- 2 Tim 4: 7-8)I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day -- and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

Mary, Everything is so true that all say about Marvin. He wore many hats successfully, had many names, Marvelous Marv, Starvin Marv (what a story) and many more. He brought sunshine to all the lives he touched and made us all better folks for knowing him. He was our angel sent from above as he always said God gave him an angel when you became his wife. More important than all was his example, he was a Godly man, an inspiration, his loving, caring, sharing, sunshiny heart will be missed. Mary, know that we love you and are here for you.
