We love you all and send our heart felt condolences. Mr. Marlon was the gold standard in men you could look up to and follow his guidance. We pray for the healing of your entire Family in the days ahead. We know it is only temporary which allows us to find that smile when we think it is going to be difficult. Love, Cleve & Elaine

It is not often that people are blessed to have in-laws that they truly consider family. But this is what I found in Uncle Marlon and Aunt Doris. Mar Mar and Tick Tock were like grandparents to my girls and for that I am truly thankful. My family has been truly blessed to have had them. I know that they are happily strolling the streets of gold together now. We miss you down here more than you can imagine. Prosper will be a lonely place without you there.
Love you,
Sheri Bordeaux
