Mark Cross was my roommate and teammate in college WIU, Mark had the biggest smile that I had ever seen. One thing Mark always talked about was his family and how much he loved then. I know his family and his police family will miss him. Mark, man I just wish we could step out on that football field together one more time.

Mark,
This morning at Peachtree Presbyterian, we celebrated your life in one of the most wonderful services I have ever attended. All of your fellow Red Dog Unit officers were there too, along with other APD officers and friends. No one could have fathomed all the wonderful things that have come from such a tragic event. You parents and family were beaming with pride. It was a CELEBRATION of your life and all the wonderful things that continue in your name.
God bless.
Mark

It is amazing the impact that Good People have on others. I miss the opportunities to bond with a Good Man, such as yourself, as we have in the past. Your contributions to our society, in every way, are appreciated. I admire your courage and pray that God has given us more men like you to make this world a great place.
