"Marlen will be deeply missed by our family. We didnt know him in his younger years, but he shared many of his memories with us. His love for Geneva was so pure and true it was his dying wish to get her back home to her people. Even though the odds were against them making it back to Georgia he did just that. Even in a fragile health situation. The love they shared couldnt be separated by even death. Hopes and prayers he and his best friend and life long sweet heart are together somewhere in perfect health laughing."
