Dear Family We were so sad to hear about the loss of Marlin. I’m so sorry we cannot be there in person to convey our sincere sympathy. Although we are Far away, please know that our prayers are with All of you. We enjoyed visiting with Marlin while he was living In Ellijay many times. He gave us much information about the town and surroundings Since he lived there for quite a while. We are connected in many ways since his great Grand children are also my grand children. We have photos and memories to share with the Grands as they grow up. So he will not be forgotten. He will be missed I’m sure by all the Family! May the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all Our trials (2 Corinthians 1:3&4) comfort all of you. With Love and sincere sympathy Steven and Karen Michael Reply to this comment
