Marcus, for your father, brother, wife, other family members and loved ones:

Marcus was a high school friend of our son, Ronald. They played trumpet together in the high school band. We remember the days when they were high school buddies. We did not see Marcus very many times after their high school graduation.

We would like to extend our condolences to all of you on the loss of Marcus. We are sorry that he did not have the opportunity to live a longer life. Quality is more important than longevity. If he was happy and living a good life, that is what matters. All of our blessings go to Marcus and his family. Roger and Mary Lorenzo
