Saying Goodbye to Town Clerk

From the City of Mansfield:

It is with a heavy heart that I have to make this post.  Our City Clerk, Marvin Jackson passed away Monday night.  To know Marvin was to love him.  Please keep Marvin’s family in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this difficult time.  Funeral services were at Shady Grove U.M.C Saturday, January 21.

I’m reminded of a poem that is only fitting to share at this time:

Don’t think of him as gone away

his journey’s just begun,

life holds many facets

this earth is only one.

Just think of him as resting

from the sorrows and the tears

in a place of warmth and comfort

where there are no days and years.

Think how he must be wishing

that we could know today

how nothing but our sadness

can really pass away.

And think of him as living

in the hearts of those he touched…

for nothing loved is ever lost

and he was loved so much.
