    Marlon, where do I start. You were like a second dad to me growing up and did so much for me after my dad had passed. You’ve helped me through some of the darkest times in my life and I am forever grateful and thankful for the person you were. You never failed to make me laugh or let me cry when needed. This is such a great loss for everyone and my heart goes out to your family. Rest In Peace.
