    Marvin was our neighbor, here on Shamrock Ave. He was always on a walk to the garden, or out on a drive with a friendly wave. And sometimes, he brought garden produce!!! Occasionally, we got a nice chat and I always felt better for it. He was not a big talker. But when he did, it was worth a listen. My condolences to his family.

    Thinking of you especially today, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sorry none of our family
    can be in attendance.

    So sorry I missed the memorial service. I haven’t seen Buddy for years, but we always had fun back in the day in Raytown.
