You were like a little brother to me. You were always so stinkin cute and always fun to be around. As an adult I got the pleasure of knowing you more when you'd come to visit me at work I cherished those moments and when you were my escort at Melissa's wedding I was so happy cause I got to walk with my little brother I know that one day I'll get to walk with you again u til that day I keep a piece of you wrapped in my heart and cherish your memories for a lifetime. You were and are an amazing man God took you too soon but then he needed your sweet heart there more. Continue to shine down your light to your mom and sister so that they may always know your comfort. Keep the love flowing through so they can feel you every day. Until we meet again. Love always."

"It is with great sympathy that I only now express my sincere regrets. I have often and fondly thought of Mark after having missed seeing him periodically at local sports events.  I coached him in wrestling at Franklin and Harlem and enjoyed his kindness and enthusiasm. I grieve for his loss and consider it to have been a great blessing to know him. My love and best regards to the family!"

"Hello Son, I have been thinking about your funeral.  I am sorry that I did not bury you in a suit like your father wanted, for some reason in my sorrowful mind, I thought you would be uncomfortable.  And I have to say that I did not like that story that your Uncle Austin gave to your dad regarding the dog and the closed door, It was awful.  Now that I have put it in writing, perhaps I can forgive myself and let it go.  Love forever.   Mom"

"I remember Mark was one of my first friends, in a nearly brand new neighborhood. i was only 5. I remember running around the "neighborhood"(which consisted of 1 street and 2 half streets) together and playing, both of us barefoot many times. I don't have any specific memories but I remember having fun those couple summers. Then we started to grow up and I didn't see him much. I ran into him after high school. He was so nice. I am sure you were so proud of him. I am sorry you lost him too soon, but he will always be in your heart and always watching over you and Melissa. Hugs to you.                       Heather "McDaniel" Vrolyk"
