Ronnie, I graduated from MHS in 1964. Your Mom and Dad were the best Houseparents I ever had at the school, and I started there in the third grade. Marlin took no "guff" from anyone and knew his job very well. Your Mom had an understanding that I wish I had command of today. They were respected by all. I also remember your Mom always wondering where you were and keeping track of you. I at times would see Grace and Marlin at Wal Mart and they always remembered me as one of the boys from Cloverdale. They were great people and a wonderful example for us all. Kenneth Provost
