To Missy and The Dokes Family, I am so sorry for your loss Missy! I am still in shock hearing about Marshall's passing. I know it has been years since we all hung out. I remember him always joking and laughing. I know how much your heart is aching right now, and the hurt that you feel. My thought and prayers are with you and Sissy and the rest of Marshall's children and Family. You are one of the strongest people I know. Just always remember the good times, keep those moments in your heart. All the good times will out weigh this tragedy. I may not be able to be there for you today, but I am always a phone call or text message away. Even after all these years of loosing touch with each other after life sent us in different directions, you will always be one of my best friends! You are on my mind and end my heart today!

I have known Marshall.... MudPuppy.... For years. Back in the day of CBs... He was a dear friend that I hadn't seen in years and now I'll have to wait till the Lord calls me home. I can still hear his voice and all the jokes and fun times with him and Angel.... Sugar britches. I'll never forget the times at Ron Girts house and his swimming pool.... Poor Marshall was never a swimmer.... Picture him with that Rubber Duck floaty around a big man.... All my love to you Marshall and family.... Rest in peace and watch over us.
