There were many things you never had to be. But, with courage, valor, candor and grace, you donned the mantle of husband, friend, father, son and brother. You exhibited those qualities every day I knew you. You will be missed. You are loved. You mattered. You made a difference. On balance, that is the embodiment of a life well lived. The Lord’s got some fishing spots for you. Until then, I’m going to ride the bike you fixed for me and reflect on how much I miss you. Rest easy, friend.
Dawn, I am so very sorry! Sending prayers and hugs.
Marc was such a special addition to the family. He brought joy and meaning into my sisters life just as we lost our brother, Glenn just three short years ago. No one knows the days that God has planned for our lives which only proves that we should live each day as though as it is our last. That is how Marc lived his with Dawn and Whitney. He loved them hard and lived each day to the fullest – always ensuring that they knew he loved them and that family meant everything to him. He missed his children and loved them as well. Our daily banter of Marine vs Army only brought more joy into our days!!! Dawn forever was sharing stories of loving moments or playful times between them. He filled her and Whitneys life with joy, love and laughter. We will miss him. We loved him and enjoyed our time with him. He’s having a holy Ghost hoe-down right now and one day we will be there to join in the fun. 😉 love you brother-in-law, Darlene and bobby
