Mark was one of the sweetest children that my Mother kept in her daycare. Always polite, but he didn't like to eat. I remember my mother trying to get him to eat. I'm so sorry for your loss.
Love & Prayers

I remember when Miley was sick and I had no clue how to give her medicine and I called you and like Always you came to my rescue. You fell asleep holding Miley afterwards while waiting for me to get ready. Your absence will make a permanent mark on the world. You will be forever loved and missed. Till we meet again soon,
