  19. Jenna Weaver says

    I loved to read the words about Marvel’s life. I didn’t know much about her. I am amazed to read she raised 9 children, and worked so hard. I can only imagine as I only have two children now, actually I mean to say, I can’t imagine. She looks so lovely and so much like my Grandma Doris, I am so happy she is with her in heaven and to hear that her faith was of highest priority, knowing she left in such peace.
