I am unable to attend the visitation or the services. I fondly remember our family Thanksgiving dinners while you were in Springfield. I enjoyed the Christmas letters and our conversations over the years. A good man has gone to his heavenly reward.
Hugs and prayers to the family.
Frances Holland (daughter of Helen Sowell)
Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend your visitation or services, Uncle Marvin, but I offer my condolences to the entire family. DA, I offer you my hugs and sympathy, and my hopes for great strength in the coming days. Marty, watch out for her and stay strong through this time of sadness. Love and best wishes, Vickie Burns (from the Helen Shelton Sowell branch of this family tree)
I am deeply saddened by the passing of Marvin and keeping the Shelton family in my thoughts. I wish I could be there to share my condolences in person, but am unable to make the visitations. I have such fond memories of growing up next door to he and Dolores and then working for him in high school. I thoroughly enjoyed our long conversations on the front porch and am indebted to him for his support of my Naval Academy endeavor. I will cherish my time with him for years to come.
