Wanda, Sherrie, Gary, and Terie, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Marvin. My early memories are wrapped up with Marvin and Wanda especially those weeks when I stayed with you while Mert was hospitalized. Bridge get-togethers, bridge club, and supper club were not only huge to Mert and Herb but also very fond memories for my sisters and I. A very clear early memory I have is of Marvin and Wanda stopping by our house to introduce us to Terie. You are all in my thoughts. Marvin will be missed. Love Danis Woodham Sprague

I can't believe how much he looked like my Uncle Melvin Pinkston. They could have been brothers. So sorry to hear about his passing. Love to the family- Dawna Ruggles, a Pinkston cousin.
