My Sweet & Faithful Jola & family my condolences to you all. May God almighty fill your hearts with peace and understanding.
I met Mark through our NeoCatechumenal Way Group. We had a couple of meetings preparing the Word at my house. I will always remember his outburst and questioning & wondering why we did things differently or how he understood it when gathering with the group. In the short time I met Mark he truly left an impact in my life. He made me laugh and I always looked forward to seeing him in our gathering. He Will always be in my heart and prayers. He is with Jesus now. Amen😇❤️🙏
☮️ May he rest in Eternal Peace ☮️
🙏PSALM 91🙏
