    My prayer is that everyone will come to a remembrance of Marvin with a smile on each face, trusting that we will all join him again in the glory of our Lord ! “While we look not on what is seen but on the unseen, for everything seen is temporary but what is not seen is eternal” ! Today, with joy, let us “run with patience the race that is before us”. In his heart, I believe that brother Marvin would want that for each of us. God bless each and every one in his family during this difficult time.
