    Jackie and Marvin were our favorite friends in Florida. MaryAnn, Frank and Marvin were the 3 Musketeers. Our hearts go out to the family and our thoughts and prayers go with you. 99's can never be played without hearing Marvin's "76 trombones"....and of course, Dominoes and 7's were also on the agenda. Good times, wonderful memories!
