My sincere condolences for the loss of a great man Marvin and a good ole' friend of ours. My husband and I would stop every trip out of Smitty Lane - from back in the Herringbone when we'd see Mr. & Mrs. T sitting on their porch and gab for quite a time with so many laughs between the 4 of us. When we finally said "It's time to get goin' " we always left them with this message:
"TO BOTH OF YOU, you know WE LOVE YOU". Smiles were always exchanged along with hugs. I miss those days seeing this beautiful family from Port Royal. Many loving words were always shared among all of Marvin and Bertie's Family. Bless you all, Dorothy Smith....
