To the Marshall Drinkwater family and loved ones,

I was so sorry to learn of Marshall's passing. I grew up with Marshall and have many fond memories of Marshall. He really was such a friendly person and always treated my family and me so well. Always respectful and friendly and filled with such enthusiasm. On top of that, him being a few years older than me, it was always remarkable to be treated so well by an older kid.

With deepest condolences,

Eric Ellis
