Mark sounds like he was a good guy.
Keep the good and sweet memories alive. I suppose such memories, while the grief is fresh, might bring sorrow, but they will bring comfort too. God bless you and your sons.

Christine, Tom and I would like to express our sympathy concerning your loss. Mark endured the pain and struggled daily and, while his earthly journey is finished, his spiritual journey has just begun. Peace to you and your family, Tom and Mies.

No words are in any way adequate following Mark's passing. I grieve with you because you have lost a fine man as your husband and stepfather; I've lost a old friend, college roomie, and buddy. I was so happy to have the chance to visit and catch up with Mark last July, and it was like old times as we laughed and reminisced. We still had much to talk about and to share with each other about ourselves, our lives and our families as friends do. Unfortunately as his illness progressed and he failed, those times were rare. When we spoke last week, Mark said in his whisper of a voice that he was still confident that God could heal him of his illness, but also said that he knew that the Lord had His own plan for him and His will would be done, no matter what. One day we will meet again and then we will have all the time we need to reminisce with one another. In the meantime, I will miss him, grieve with you, and count it a privilege to have had him as my friend.
