    My deepest condolences to your family. Lyla was very special to me and always remember me in the best of ways. She was a very important part of my life growing up (my favorites were the birthday celebrations she arranged for me). She continued to always remember me throughout the years. I was very blessed to have her as my Godmother. Her memory will always be with me.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers,


  2. Janet Boyer Edlen says:

    I’m so so sorry to hear this. My mom was Marvin’s cousin. She said she didn’t hear back from Lyla this Christmas and she was worried. I remember sweet Lyla in California at my great Aunts (Marvin’s mom) when I was young.
