    Marlan was such a blessing to all that knew him. My prayers are with your family in this time of loss. I
    rest in the comfort that he is now in the presence of our lord, and reunited with his dear Margaret.
    May we all remember his constant preparations for the kingdom.

    the same time knowing he is where he wants to be with his heavenly father
