  • None of us are guaranteed tomorrow but we are all guaranteed a resurrection(John 5:28, John 6:40 and John 11:25). Jesus is the resurrection and the life. God has provided Jesus’ ransom sacrifice so that by our faith in it we might have hope. My condolence on the death of your dear loved one.

    I’d learned of Marks passing today and it’s with a heavy heart that I’m writing this. Mark was the best man at my wedding, his name is my first born sons middle name and Mark will forever be a part of who I’ve become today and it’s sincerely owed to him. He was big on second chances and gave me the opportunity to better my life at a time when I’d hit rock bottom at a young age when nobody else would. I’m eternally grateful for everything that Mark was and will miss him dearly. While family and work got in the way of keeping in touch with him frequently, he was always there as my mentor and confidant when needed and I’ll greatly miss his gruff voice and sage advice. My only regret is not knowing the last time we spoke would be the last time. Thank you for everything Mark
