    Someone that loved him

    Marvin spent 30 years give or take a little with Kathy Smith but was not mentioned in the obit pretty sad nor was her children. Bill,Joel,Carol, Sally, Lois and Patrick. Lois who lived next door and did every thing for him took to the grocery store, doctors apts, hospitals was there for him every day till he died. Lois made a promise to her Mother before she died that she would take care of Marvin for her and that promise Lois kept. Marvin’s wishes were to be cremated and to be with Kathy not to be buried. Very sad that this can happen against his wishes. Marvin was loved by all of this family and will be missed very much. It is very sad that they are not even acknowledged one bit in this, no thank you to Lois for all that she did for you dad, nor any thanks to any of them for the love they shared with your father. Your father who is now seeing what is going on is not at ALL happy about any of this.
