    Oh how I miss my funny, loving friend Marvin. He sure did like to laugh, tell great stories, watch his Packers, and tell tales of his family and his years in entertainment. He loved the last two the most for sure! Marv, I hope you are having the time of your life now in glory! Keep them all entertained and smiling! You sure did that for me! Love you forever my friend, miss you so!
    Now look who the angel truly is! ?✝️❤
