ADD A MEMORY
Terry Milstead

Mark was an extremely intelligent and complicated man, a gifted pianist with a hilariously quirky sense of humor. He enjoyed sharing jokes with me and relished pulling pranks on me. I remember with fondness and smiles rubber snakes, frogs and spiders and a number of family gift giving games of “hot and cold”. I will miss his favorite sarcastic answer for just about everything “uh huh”.

He loved his Dad, Mom and little sister Sheri. He was an animal lover and fierce advocate for animals. He was not an overly demonstrative individual but if he hugged you or said he loved you, you knew Mark was being truthful. I miss our talks, family lunches, family dinners, family holiday celebrations, playing cards and our family time together. I miss his musicality. I miss his rudeness, surliness and secretiveness. I miss our conversations regarding events of the day and your quick sarcastic answers. Mark, I miss you. I wish you were here for your family.

Your body faltered during your illness but your faith in God kept you till you went home to be with Jesus. I pray you have found peace, rest, happiness and comfort in the precious arms of Jesus. You are missed more than you could ever comprehend by Sheri and your family.

Mark, along with his sister, Sheri and I always have been very close. We are double cousins as our fathers were brothers and our mothers were sisters. I spent one to two weeks with them almost every summer. One summer even made it to a 6 weeks stay. Their parents were my Godparents. You could say I had two families. Sheri, I know you will miss Mark greatly. Even though I did not get to see him as much in the past few years, not a day went by that I did not think of your entire family. I remember the very first time I saw Mark. I was only 7 years old. I was so excited. I will miss Mark and love both he and you until the day I join our heavenly family. You both have meant so very much to me over the years. Love, Arlene
