I just recently went through a rough time and had a problem. I was told by an old man " to do what Marvin would do". At that point I no  longer had a problem, God Bless You Marvin and Thank You for continuing to Bless Us.

Oh. Mike, Marvin was one of the finest people I have even known.  Go back and read "Apple Sunday and Marvin"...He was a little man with a genuine faith and a hheart as big as the world.  He continually gave to all around him.....even though he had nothing.  I can tell you stories....A Marine who was in the invasion of O kinawa on April 1 1945, Easter Sunday.  But he was a pacifist.  He was wounded--had shrapnel in his brain...on the hospital ship he would go around and visit other wounded soldiers.....
One more thing.  I have done funerals for many people I was close to...his was the only funeral at which I began to cry--reading Isaiah 2:4

And, 'roadkill'....yeah.  I do the same thing.  When certain waters get rough, I think about Marvin.....

It sounds to me like Marvin had a lot. What a nice way to start my day. Thanks for the share.

I didn't realize WHO Marvin was.

Rev set me straight.

I wish I could have bought Marvin a few beers....and listen to his stories and tales.

Coulda Shoulda.....

My Loss.

Rest in peace Marvin.

Thank you

Don't think he drank beer...but nonetheless the thought is kind!
