The Baily Family, I Am So Very Sorry To Hear The Passing Of Your Loved One. I Too Have Lost Loved Ones In Death. But The Scriptures In The Bible Have Been Such A Comfort To Me. The Scripture In John 5:28,29 Tells Us... "That All Those In The Memorial Tombs Will Hear His Voice And Come Out" And In The Book Of Revelation 21:3,4 God Promises "To Wipe Every Tear From Our Eyes, And Our Enemy, "Death" Will Be No More. I Pray That These Scriptures Help You Find Comfort As They Have Me. Again I Am Very Sorry, Linda Giolitto

I am very sadden to learn of your Marvin’s passing. The times spent sitting on the porch, drinking coffee and sharing stories, seeing the glean sparkle in his eyes when he talked about Carrie. I am honored to have been a part of the Fairland family, and cherish the time I shared with your dad, love Doug.

Marvin lived a long life and without knowing him I can clearly see he was a loving husband. 66 years of marriage is a lifetime in it's self. I hope the family and friends can take solace in the words found at John 11:25. There it states that even if a person passes away they will be brought back to life on the account of having faith.
