    To the family of Marvin Jones, I send my deepest sympathy for your loss and pray God will bless and comfort you during this sad time. I enjoyed talking with Marvin as we had a lot of things in common, like Colington UMC, reading through the Holy Bible in one year and discussing scripture, family, friends, past experiences of work, military, etc. It all seemed better after talking. I am sorry we lost contact after he moved. He does not have medical problems and pain anymore. I am looking forward to seeing him again.
