My heart goes out to Wanda, Pam, Sharon, and Chris, as well as Carl's extended family. Playing drums with the Ambassador Quartet was some of the best times in my life. Carl influenced me in ways I can't describe here. He truly was an inspiration to me. I truly miss him.

Kathy & I extend our most sincere sympathy to Wanda, Pam, Sharon,Chris and the extended family of Carl Marvin. Some of my best times ever were spent with him while playing softball, bowling or singing. The 'Coach' was the best. He will be missed.

I celebrate Mr. Froderman's life. Having met him through the services provided him in Fort Smith, I found him a wonderful person and wish I had known him earlier. Our Volunteers dearly loved visiting with him. Blessings for his service to our country and the family's sacrifices during that time.
