Mark, was such a kind and sweet person. Anytime he was around I knew I was going to have a good conversation and lots of laughs.
He was always happy to see my husband and I as well as we were happy to sit and visit with him and Rachel. My heart is broken that this man won’t be here to see his beautiful grandchildren grow up. But I do know he will be watching over them and enjoying every minute. You are well now and at peace my friend. Hope you and my son are together. We love you Dennis and Virginia Trujillo
