A TRUE LEADER & FRIEND - 12/12/2011

Mark, he will be missed by everyone at the Meshanticut Vista Apartment Building. Mark was a very important part of all of us. Always there if and when you need him. He's no longer here at the apartment building...
He's is God's House now and forever.
God be with you.

Sadly, I didn't know my cousin Mark. A combination of distance and some sort of stupid rift in the family kept us apart. I tried to reconnect with that branch of the family a couple of years ago, but sadly it went nowhere.

Mark was my uncle we didn't talk much but he was a great man and was loved by many.
