I was very sadden to hear of the loss of Marlin. But one think I know from the many conversations that I had with him, is that he is truly in God's arms. June and Family may God bless you through this difficult time.

Rejoicing that Marlin is with the Lord, but sad for the family and know he will be missed by so many. We were friends for practically our entire adult lives and count Marlin and June as family. So many wonderful memories we would share whenever we were together. But also Marlin loved talking history, current events, Theology, Missions, not to mention family. Always a highlight to visit. Rest In Peace, Marlin. We know you are understanding now many things we discussed together! Praying for June, Marla, Dennis, Karen and Jill.

Heartfelt condolences to the Fuller family. I look forward to a time when we no longer have to experience pain or death as mentioned in Revelation 21:4. May Jehovah, the God of comfort, give you peace that surpasses all understanding during this difficult time.

Dear Fuller Family: My sympathies to all of you, as our Lord has taken Marlin Home. When a saint goes Home, my comfort is Phil. 1:21-24. Dying is gain. In Heaven, we're with the Lord! Where there's no temptation, no sin, no sickness. Paul was pulled between 2 poles: going to be with the Lord, or staying here, where there would be "fruit from his labor." I'd say that is the key. When our work for the Lord is finished, He takes us Home. Marlin, Old Friend, you are truly retired! Thank you for your always kind demeanor, your sense of humor, your knowledge of so many things, your passing of Faith to the next generation, your desire to be God's kind of man, & your clear manifesting of His kind of man. See you later, Brother.
