Mark would stop by our office to see us almost daily for a few years. What I remember most about him is the constant smile he had on his face. It was like no one could wipe that smile off for anything. Always in a good mood and put you in a good mood when he showed up. He knew how to get us to tuck our troubles away permanently or only for a few moments. After his passing, it makes me think this is how I want to be remembered. Sometimes you don’t know what you have lost until it’s gone or what you had when it was here. He was a good man at a time when they are an extinct breed. Someone you could trust as a friend. I will always remember that permanent smile he had and I will endeavor to be more like him throughout my years left on this earth. Heaven is a better place now that he has entered. God bless Marcus as I used to call you that. And god bless your family.
