Martin...I am so sorry to hear that your dad has passed away. I wish I would have taken the time to see him when I bumped into you earlier this past year. We met at the Racquet Club about 30 years ago when I was a member with my 3 young daughters. We became good friends. I really enjoyed Marshall. He was sweet and easy going. I hope to see him in Heaven one day. You have deepest sympathy. Joy Werl
