Dad always said: The best gifts in life are the ones you don't ask for...

7 out of 70
by Neal and Karla Marlow

Marvin, we have seven years of knowing you now - only one-tenth of your entire life - but we feel we have shared many warm, funny, interesting, and enlightening moments with you and Elfi. You always know how to make a person come away from a conversation with new questions and fresh perspectives. When Neal was having his problems in Arizona, your help and concern meant so much to both of us. We were remembering when you met our attorney, Bob Hirsch, and what a great impression you made on him with your honesty and interest. He told us that he had not made such a meaningful connection with another person in a long time. We couldn't have gotten through such a rough period without your friendship and support. We join your other friends and family to wish you a very happy 70th and many more years of dancing with Elfi. (and Sadye and Peter and a few of us who might like to cut in from time to time).

Much love, The Marlows
