To all my dear cousins and families, I have such wonderful memories of Uncle Marvin and Aunt Mertie when we would have family reunions, staying a week in the summer or two, so much love and laughter. I know Uncle Marvin is at peace now with Jesus. He gets to see my Daddy and his love, Aunt Mertie. I Love You all. Connie (Moody) Engler (937) 441-1292
