    Very sorry to hear of the passing of Marlin. Knew him from Ithaca,NE while my parents ran the elevator there.I know my parents thought alot of him and Judy…they had alot of fun together. I would run into Marlin in later years and he always spoke and added a smile. The family has my deepest sympathies.

    What a nice service for Marlin today. He was a wonderful man who was always very kind and
    a great supporter of Mead athletics. I know that if Myrle realized his passing she would be devastated. Thank you for all that Marlin and Anne did for Myrle. Jerome and my sympathies to his family.
