My most sincere and deepest condolences to you, the family of Mark. I don't know if you remember me but I was your maid when Mark was a little boy and I remember his kind and gentle spirit. I often wondered where the family relocated to but I'm so sorry to hear about Mark passing because I don't know if you reall Mark and my son were the same age they were just a month apart. If you like to contact me my email address is included may God bless you always

Mark- if you are listening from above, thank you for being a wonderful nephew and loving cousin/big- brother to all my kids. The best part of 10 years living in Atlanta was you and all of our East-coast family. Holidays and gatherings were always super fun. I will cherish those memories.

Jeff Sewell, Monterey Park, CA

So sorry i cannot be at the service today. I will miss Mark a lot.

We enjoyed spending time with Mark over the many years. He was kind and always made us smile. He is now in heaven with his Uncle Tom McCollister who loved him very much also. Rest in Peace our friend!

My condolences for the passing of Mark.

Though Mark was my first cousin's cousin, he always treated me as his cousin. Once when he came for a visit he said now, How are we cousins? I told him in the heart. Mark always treated me with respect and love. He will truly be missed, I feel blessed knowing he will be watching over us. RIP, my dear friend you always understood me. May everyone be blessed by the wonderful memories of Mark. Love to all the family!

To Marks parents, John and Patricia: I know the coming days, weeks and months will be sadness to hard to bare, but God will sustain you for I believe Mark has seen the face of God. Mark was dedicated to his faith in God. I am glad to have met Mark and to call him my friend. As a cancer survivor, I admired Mark in the way he did not let his diagnosis stop him from living life and attending church. He was a inspiration to all who knew him. I know you both are very proud of him and surly will miss him. My prayers are with you. Ronnie

Dear John & Pat, Bob and Jeff & family, Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your lives and for sharing Mark with me. The effects of Mark's impact and testimony will continue to ripple throughout all of our lives. God had a great purpose for Mark and he accomplished that and continues to do so. Mark's life has drawn people closer to Him and it brought a community of family closer together. Mark now sees and knows things we cannot fathom. He has seen God face to face and has been entirely perfected. I will miss our talks and lunches and drives, but I think he would tell me this, "dude, it's much better here... just wait, you'll see" Love you all. ~Mark
