Beautiful Tribute Rico. Good memories are food for the soul, may you never be hungry. Clint and Bonnie
Mark I'll never forget the memories we shared in grade school. All the sleepovers, staying up all night, and sugar rushes encapsulate the time we shared together. Rest in peace buddy!
Mark was one of the most genuine people I have ever had the pleasure of having in my life. Although we only hung out for close to two years, we were able to create some of the best memories that I will cherish forever! I'll definitely miss our crazy nights that always required a thorough re cap in the morning, our life chats, and his ridiculously funny jokes. Mark, you were an amazing person and such a great friend. I already miss you so much. Until we meet again xoxo rest in peace
I first met Mark when he was about 7 years old. I was reconnecting with Shelley after about 15 years. When I saw her last she was barely out of high school & now she had this huge amazing family. Of all her children, Mark was the one who sat down with me like we'd been friends forever. He proceeded to explain a very intricate game he was creating. He was so full of enthusiasm and ideas that I thought to myself 'This young man will change the world', and I'm sure he has for every person who loves him. At the end of our first encounter, Mark noticed that I was wearing a number of rings. He asked if he could see two or three of them & I took them off for him to examine. After he looked them over, he was quiet for a moment before turning back to me asking "Can I give these to my mother?" Shelley laughed and told him they were mine, but his response was so reasonable: "But she has so many." He just wanted things to be fair. And that's who Mark is for me: a creative, loving young man who just wanted to set things right. That's an inspiring legacy.
