Mark,

Tomorrow thousands will gather in your honor, to praise the life you lived, and grieve the life we lost. Many will say their goodbyes to a true hero, son, brother, father, husband and friend. I will meet you for the first time. I'm so sorry we meet this way brother. However brief our time together, I will take it with me, as a keepsake that nothing is forever. You remind us all to live the time we have here to its fullest, and do the best we can each and every moment. You were doing YOUR best when God called you home. Thank you for living that lesson Mark. You may be gone... but you will NEVER be forgotten.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. Mark was great to have on the M.A. football team! He added a great deal with his intensity on game day and his smile when coaches regulary joked about him and some of the younger guys in front of the rest of team. I can only imagine how great of a son, husband and father he was to you all. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
