Marv and I started at Oklahoma State University only one day apart. From the beginning, he impressed me as a brilliant researcher, creative, collaborative and oneof the best teachers I have ever met. We worked together on the Green Seeker project. There are no words to express the friendship I had with Marv. He made me laugh, and pushed me to do better. He was a dear friend and I am lucky to have known him and worked with
him for so many years. He visited me this past summer here in Nebraska where we discussed our usual topics; it is a visit I will always remember and cherish.
Bonnie will be sorely missed, I will miss teasing her about her ranch just across the border in Colorado. She had a great sense of humor and was a good friend. My family and I will miss the Stones very much.
