I woke up some 77 years ago and God blessed me with such family members throughout my life.  Your father brought his special gifts of life to me and my family.  Doris and I had a very special love for him, your mother, and each one of you -- David - Jan  -  Joan.
I thank God for the happy memories and love he and your family gave to me and Doris.

All my love,
Uncle Bruce

Marvin was one of the first people I regularly played golf with when I first took up the game 10 years ago.  Every day on the links with him was a fond memory I will never forget.  His tremendous sense of humor added so much to the enjoyment of the game.  I'll miss him!

 What a wonderful man, Joan & family!  What an inspiration to hear of the deeds of such a man!  No wonder you are so special, Joan.
He died on my birthday. (Julie)

 Dear Joan,
I was so sorry to hear about your dad passing. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers!

Love, Vickie Fortson
 Dear Joan, Richard & family,
Your Dad was indeed a special man who obviously deeply touched many lives.  May you take solace in his long and fulfilling life! My deepest sympathy and love go out to you.

 I am so sorry for your loss. Psalms 55:22 says: throw your burden upon God and he will sustain you. Never will he allow the righteous to totter. So, please go to him, in your spare time, and taste and see that he will sustain you, because he love you and your loved one. I hope these bring you and your family some comfort during the difficult days ahead and in your time of need.
