I am so sorry to know the loss you have suffered. Marlin was an awesome friend and I feel blessed to have known him. He has kept in touch with me over the past 6 years after adopting his little Gem and I know how he spoiled her. May he rest in peace with Buttons & Gemmy by his side. Thank you for blessing me with your friendship and I wish we could have met.
