My deepest sympathies to the Segreaves family, especially to Jeanne and Sharon. I remember Mr Segreaves from when I’d visit Sharon at her home in Mt. Pleasant, NJ. I also would speak to him, many years later, when he’d come to shop at Walmart. He and Mrs Segreaves were always very nice to me. My sincere thoughts are with all the family.

From: Elizabeth Segreaves Heafner
I am now remembering all of the fun things Marv and I did together as children...digging for earth worms so that Marvin could fish, bailing out water in his rowboat on the Deleware river, and getting ice off the creek so that our dad could make homemade icecream. Marvin was such an interesting guy and always had adventure stories to share. I am sending loving thoughts to my precious nieces, Sharon, Laura Jean and their families. Love, Aunt Betty

Dear Sharon and Laura Jean, We are so sorry that we cannot be with you and your families at this time. We always loved our time with your amazing dad - he was truely an animal whisperer! Please know that we are thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers. Lovingly, Cindy and Brenda
