Your Dad will always be here in spirit. He will greet you in your dreams. Your memories of his love for you and Emma will carry you through. In heaven he can have steak and eggs everyday and watch Miss Em grow up. He will be with you in whatever you do. He is proud of you. He loved you always and he will forever no matter what. My love to you and the whole family.

Dear Bruce & Barbara,
We were so sorry to hear of Mark's passing. He was always so pleasant and
cheerful. We met him a couple of times @ your home. He was too young
to pass away. Our deepest sympathy to you both and his family.

Love, Joe and Fran Sinagra

I will miss many things about you: your phone calls to shoot the breeze, your patience in teaching me to drive, your skill in raising Christie and your love for Emma.

Mark, I am grateful for our time together both growing up and especially for the last year. There are so many great memories that I have to keep you close by. I won't forget all that you did for me; all that you did raising Christie and all that you were for your grandaughter Emma. Rest in peace and remember that when we meet again it's your turn to buy breakfast.

Dear Dad, Where do I begin. Laugh at all the moments we created as I grew up. Cringe at all the times I got in trouble growing up. Cry at the many more moments we still needed to have together. I'm the luckiest daughter in the world to have had such an amazing, strong, big hearted father like you. You raised me to be happy, independent and to be the best that I can be. Emma is the luckiest granddaughter in the world have such a proud Papa who adored her so dearly. Two peas in a pod is the best way I could describe the both of you. I pray that your spirit continues to be with her as she grows in life. I see so much of you in Emma. Some of her comments, the way she thinks things through and don't forget a sprinkle of stubbornness too. Thank you for being a father to Stephan. I know Stephan has a great deal of respect for you and loves you with all of his heart. Dad my heart hurts right now but I know over time that pain will heal. I know you will be with me and my family forever. I love you so much Dad. Your loving daughter, Christie
