Dear Aunt Shirley, John, Pam, Jim, Dawn, Jeff, Julie, John, Joel & Tricia, Steve & I are going to miss all of the fun we had with your Dad, on our sheepshead get-togethers. Uncle Marvin always enjoyed the time we spent together and the good food, especially the raw beef and onions and of course, a few cold beers. These memories will always stay forever etched in our minds. Rest in peace Uncle Marvin.
