    Trust in God because prayer is the key and faith unlocks the door for "Iron Mike's" family. I am still in total shock of the passing of Marvin. He was such a jolly & cheerful young man and an awesome friend to my children [Roderick (Woogie) and Tyrique (LilD)]. To the family and friends, you all are continuously in my prayers.
