Thomas & Gwen Riley - April 28, 2012 Contact this person
Marvin and the Taff Family, was like my own family! He is my Brother, and always will be. As a child growing up, I spent more time, ****, watching TV, with all the Brothers, than I did at my own home! Gwen and I, will miss him greatly! He was one of the greatest men I've ever known! We are sorry, that we can't attend. We are in Florida, visiting our son. Our thought's and our prayers are with all the Family and friends! Gwen said, Marvin was the reason, she started attending church, at the East Side Tabernacle. We know our daughter, "Dani", and her Uncle Marvin, are up in Heaven, catching up on old times, with God, and all the Angels! Tom and Gwen Riley

Glenda and Family, Words alone could never express my sorrow for you all. On the flip side I am so, so excited for Bro. Marvin because I can only imagine the time he is having right now. In reading his obituary I had to smile and chuckle at the comment " any better and I couldn't stand it" I could just hear him saying that. The last time we were in California and we went by to see him those were his exact words when I asked how he was, said it almost all the time. I know he was loved by many many people and that his life had such great impact on so many, but I have to tell you this, If not for Marvin I would never have had the relationship with the Lord that I have. I never knew until he taught me what it means to give more than lip service to Jesus. what it means to really love HIM and to be able to accept that HE loves me. I look forward to seeing him again someday and until then I know he is where he has spent his whole life on this earth to be. Love you guys and my prayers are with you all, I will be there in spirit on May 1st, wish I could be there in person. Genny and Dave Whitt

Glenda and the Taff family, I wanted to take this time to give you my deepest sympathy for your loss. Marvin was well liked by me, and I always enjoyed conversations with him. Marvin always had a smile on his face that really made a person feel good, and he had time to listen to whatever you had to say. If it was some spiritual uplifting or a prayer you needed, Marvin would help. I know he will be missed by your family and many others around the area who knew him. All loses are hard, but with time and good memories shared with friends and family, the hurt of the loss will ease, but his memory will never pass. My best to all, and I really wish I could attend the service, but I'm here in Texas now and unable to make it there. Marvin can be at peace with God,Jesus, Brother Joe and Sister Ann as well as his little brother Earl......Ed Holt.
