From Katie Massey...

Mindy, I am so so so sorry to hear about Marvin. He was one of my favorites. He was rough on the outside but had a heart of gold. I will never forget when he came in the office a few years ago and the door was locked but I was in here. I came to unlock it and he asked me why I had it locked. There had been a random man come in the office while I was alone and scared me enough to lock the door. Ironically, Marvin was there about an hour after it happened. He told me that if that ever happened again, that I was to give him a call right away and he would be down here to help me. He said he always had a truck within a minute of my building. I will miss him! I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers!

From Craig Byers...
