Marvin Sellers (baitthebilly) has died. Pray for his family

Post by wvhillbilly47 » Wed Aug 14, 2013 12:59 am

I have learned this night that our dear poetry friend, Marvin Sellers, aka baitthebilly died on July 31st. I last had an email from him about two weeks prior to his death and he said he had some fluid on his lungs but the doctor was treating him.

Here is a link for his online obituary: ... h_id=11860

He had been in a nursing home in his hometown of Oelwein, Iowa for a while, and had even been married on this past Valentine's Day to a woman he met in the nursing home.

His funeral services are to be held on August 16th.

May we pray for his family, and friends!! I know what a dear friend he was to me, and I am sure to many, many others!!

May our friend, a Godly man, rest in eternal peace with our precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!!

The proud heritage of my forefathers has given me the freedoms that are those to claim as mine. May I always give homage to the sacrifices they have made to bring me to this place, this day!

I am sadden by this news... I truly did enjoy reading Marvin's poetry. It had a simplistic style that conveyed feelings beautifully. He is one in a million and will be missed by all who knew him here. My prayers are with his loved ones. May God watch over him and him over us. We will miss you Marvin!
