Ms Mary,
I was so saddened to learn of Mr Walton's passing, as were all of us! He was such a good person and a kind man. It was comforting to me knowing that he didn't have to suffer a long, drawn out illness. God Bless you both!

May God comfort you during this time of transition of Marvin passing from this earth. Marvin was truly a great man, and I enjoyed the times we spent with our Mopar buddies. Marvin was a quiet person, but always offered to help in any way possible. There were many car events in which Marvin was in attendance and eager to enjoy the activities. God bless you Marvin and the entire Walton family, knowing he is home with eternal health and happiness.
