    Having been related to the Marin’s for some 20 years, they have all remained a part of my life in some way and Geiven was no exception. He came to live with Andre’ and I as a teen and later as an employee, both for a short but memorable time. Rest in Peace Geiven. You will always be remembered as the kid who laughed with his soul.

    Good bye Geiven.
    I was probably 12 when I first met you. I hadnt seen you for at least 20 years. Although it wasn’t under the greatest circumstance I am glad I got to see you one last time. You were as crazy as uncle John. There was plenty of laughter when u were around.

    My condolences to the Marin family.
