Sympathies to the entire Hintz Family. Marvin was a wonderful, kind man and will be missed by all who had the pleasure to know him.
Uncle Marvin was a great man. I always admired him for his intelligence, success and the way he quietly gave back to the community around him. He was a model of selfless generousity. Few people will ever know how much he and Aunt Dawn did to make this world a much better place. To all my cousins I know you will take fond memories of you parents with you through your entire lives.
Dearest Beth (and all of the Hintz Family) -
It was with much sadness that I learned of the passing of your dad, Marvin Hintz, on Saturday. I know that you were very close to your dad. You were always good about going to see him while he was on the Farm and then when he was in the nursing home. There were so many trials during his last months, but as we talked, he was ready to go. I know that you were so glad that you spent that "extra" time with him the weekend before he died.
It is so hard to lose a parent, but he will always be with you. Your dad (and mom) taught you so much about life. You are an amazing reflection of that love that they shared with you....not to mention all those siblings and family that surrounded you.
Edith Wharton stated this, "There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."
You and your family have my sincere sympathy at the passing of your dad, grandfather and great-grandfather. I suspect that your dad is now at peace; free from pain and suffering.
Edward Cunningham stated this, "For the heart that is free, life is a celebration of beauty, a festival of the spirit."
May the heather and shamrocks fall softly for your dad. He will be missed by many, many people.
Beth and the Hintz family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May the happy memories of your Dad carry you through this difficult time.
I was blessed to have Marvin and Dawn as my father and mother in law. Wonderful memories of a couple who loved each other and loved the Lord.
