I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Marvin's passing. Although we didn't see each other often, he always had a warm hug for me and a kind word. He loved to cut up and have a good time. I have fond memories as a kid being at his house as he introduced me to the world of WWF wrestling. I pray that the family will find peace with their treasured memories. Love to all.
