I met Mr. McCann several years ago when I was his mothers home health nurse. I tried to keep in touch with Marvin, but life just kind of happened. I adored both of them. And I know how much he missed her.
May you rest in complete peace Mr. McCann.

My sympathy to Cheryl and all family members. I'm praying for you all. Marvin and I are cousins. I understand that our grandmothers were not just cousins but close friends who visited often through adulthood. We became acquainted at a private preschool called Sessions Kiddie Kollege in Muskogee, where we grew up. Our parents informed us that we were related. We did not have a close relationship until we reconnected as adults. We became close friends and shared many hours on the telephone. My family and I drove from Kansas to visit with him several times in Texas. Even through all of his illnesses, he seemed to never give up. He loved to help others and was faithful to provide care for his mother until she passed away. He was also faithful to his church, providing security service several times a week. It's been a blessing having Marvin in my life. I will miss him. Rest in peace my cousin/friend.

Marvin was my childhood friend from 1st grade through high school. He was like a brother to me and l loved him and his mother Mrs. McCann dearly. We lost contact after the loss of my baby girl “Juicy “ but he always remained in my heart. He was special and so was his Mom. I know he was saved and look forward to seeing him again on the other shore. My deepest condolences to the family...
