Condolence & Memory Journal

You have my sympathy in the passing of your father. I owned an advertising agency in Grand Rapids for many years, but I live in Holland. One of my clients, Standard Lumber and Kitchens was headquartered in Grand Rapids, but had then, and still does, a location in Holland. That unique situation was a fun thing that created a warm friendship between Marv and myself. Often he would travel to my agency in Grand Rapids and we would discuss the business climate and also the fun of living in Holland. He was a warm, wonderful man and I always enjoyed his humble humor and I also respected his genuine and honest, open character.
