Marvin wrote (with his best fried, Eddie Leavitt) a song that many of his friends and relatives are quite familiar with: Once Again. It was published in 1942. Eddie Friedman read the lyrics during the service, for us all to enjoy again.

They said our love had ended - but I wouldnít realize,
That you and I could part
Our broken hearts have mended proving true love never dies
I hope this will mean another start.
Once Again, I see the promise in your smiling eyes,
I catch a glimpse then of Paradise,
And once again I dare to dream;
(All over again,) in Reverie,
I thrill again to your warm embrace,
The soft surrender in your lovely face,
That I canít erase from my dreams,
Do you recall, all the vows we made dear,
Before we two drifted apart,
We carved our lives on a yielding stone;
Itís heavenly beauty for us alone,
Once Again we shall create a Citadel of love,
And blessings gather from high up above,
To start anew dear, Once Again.
