I have known Mark since Junior High & loved him since High School. The Lord brought us back together over a year ago. Our time back together was too short.  I will miss my soulmate every minute of every day!

Karen, I am so sorry!  I know your heart is broken.  May you and his family find peace and grace as you learn how to live around the pain that his absence will bring. 

I remember Mark from Ridgecrest, Crockett, and AHS.  He was quiet, smiled most of the time, and never failed to return a greeting of "hi" or "hello".   He drove some of the teachers crazy, as he would ask questions they could not answer, this always made me snicker, I think he enjoyed getting the best of them.

Dear Karen,

How blessed you were to reunite with Mark after all these years. I know you treasured your time together. I shared Accounting class with Mark our Senior year and also worked with him at Mann's Fourplex Theatre. Mark was such a great guy and will be missed by many. May God wrap His loving arms around you and surround you with His love. 

Sincerely, Debbie

I knew Mark only from AHS. I remember that he and I were in the same algebra class (Mr Colson's) as sophomores. I remember him as ever-friendly, funny, and a great classmate. I was sorry to read of his passing. My condolences to Karen and to Mark's family.
