I'm so sorry for your loss. Marvin was a very good man and will be greatly missed. May God comfort and bless all of you in the coming days.
Jim: Thank the Lord for the many wonderful years you shared with your Dad. Very few people are blessed with that opportunity. May the Lord be with you and your family during these trying times.
Marvin was by far one the best friends and mentors I've had in my lifetime. I truly enjoyed working around his place and all the great stories he had to tell. He will be dearly missed
My sympathies are with you all as you walk this valley again--saying farewell to a wonderful man. His hope in the Lord Jesus has now been realized and he is Home!
Deepest sympathy. What wonderful man. God bless all who loved him. Kenny and Lisa Crafton
So sorry I enjoyed talking with Marvin
Marvin West was a person I liked and admired. He loved the land. He rented 80 acres from me and took very good care of it before passing it on to his son Jim. Before that he patched fences with my dad. It is hard to imagine the Moorefield area without him. He will be remembered and missed for the rest of my life.
So sorry. Prayers for all.
Deepest Sympathies from the Green Family to yours. From friends of Dakota.
He will be missed
