  1. I have tried to locate Mark’s mom. Hi, I’m Chris’ mom, Cindy. I remember Mark as a kind-hearted, loving and caring gentleman. He and I spoke mid-summer and he said “I’m really sorry for your loss.” You see, my son of 21.5 years passed through this life in December; it’s only been ten months. I’d like to speak with you but first would like to know this is even going to be read by you. Please contact me at the e-mail address I left.
    Mark was one of a kind and what a true gentelman you raised when it mattered most to a mother of only one son, to offer words of kindness and sincerity. We spoke of the Lord and he had lots of questions. I want you to know I know your pain and I grieve along with you. Please contact me.
