Many good memories growing up around Marvin. He was my brother's best friend growing up...and they went all thru school together and ran track and cross-country together. I was the pesty little sister but they put up with me. Memories of sitting down to dinner and hearing a knock on the was always Marvin or hearing his motor scooter hit the driveway. ha Good memories. He was a good friend to my bro and always a good person. R.I.P. Marvin Paschal. You earned your wings...too soon.
