Malvin was kind, caring, and loyal. Although quiet at times he could always make you laugh. He was a father, a brother, an uncle, and a best friend. After finding God, he was always smiling and had such a love for the Lord that shined brightly even during his illness. Malvin’s smile, his laughter, his jokes, and his love will be missed by all that knew him.

Although gone never forgotten and always loved. Until we meet again.
13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. 15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are sleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
