Our family would like to express our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Marvin Ray Teel. Words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, and death is truly a painful enemy to the human family. Please take comfort in 2 scriptures found in God’s Word the Bible. John 5:28,29 speaks of the resurrection, and Revelation 21:3,4 promises the time in the future when death and mourning will be no more. Our prayers are with you.

To Marvin’s family. I grew up with him, he was such a kind man
His Aunt Myrtle & Uncle Bill raised me. We were basically 1st cousins
He and Roy loved their grandfather (Luther) who lived with us. So the boys were at the house a lot. I’m sad we lost touch through the years.
He was Such a sweet man
. RIP Marvin
Prayers for comfort. 🙏🏻❤️
