Uncle Charles and family, I send my most sincerest sympathies and prayers to all of you. I haven't been in touch and I found this notice online just last night to my astonishment and disbelief. I am shocked! Where has time gone to? It only takes a moment to pull a memory out of my Aunt Marj, that bring tears and laughter. I love remembering summers in Linden when our families were always together. It was a treat walking through the garden with Aunt Marj and Granny. Aunt Marj sure knew how to fuss over you and make you feel right at the center of the universe. I felt so close and safe with her. I am filled with deep regret for having not been there to comfort all of you and her. I know I can never get the time I missed with her back. It's gone! I prayed last night and spoke aloud to her. Always, I will cherish your memory and the strong woman you were. It pleases me to think that you are reunited with my dad (Big Marvin), uncle Buhl (Lester) and of course "Granny" and Grandpa Bowman. They have all gone before you and like them you will endure because your blood, spirit and memories flow through us all. I love you Aunt Marj...I never liked anyone else to say it but no matter how big I got I always loved it when you called me "Baby Marvin"... I love you Aunt Marj. There has never been anybody like you and there never will be. Peace be with you.
Love your nephew, "Baby Marvin"
