I have few memories of my brother Mark. The ones I do have are all good! I have heard so many funny stories about him. Every time I saw Mark he was either smiling or looked to me to be in deep thought. I wish I could have know more of you. I love you and will always miss you. Thank you for the gift of at least knowing the names of many of my family members I didn't even know existed.

Mark always put others first. He was the most unselfish person I've ever known. He lived to help others and never did any harm to anyone. He himself was hurting but was so thoughtful about the feelings of everyone else that he didn't let on how much. I only realized how much after it was too late. He wasn't a religious person but I believe God looks into the heart of his children and sees beyond the surface when he judges us, so I don't think Mark is hurting anymore.
