Hi my name is Kayla and I am a local bible teacher. I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. There is a very comforting scripture at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away all of the tears. So we can all look forward to a time when death will be no more. I hope that this scripture can bring some true comfort during these difficult times.

My memories with Mark will last a lifetime. He was a kind and caring soul who loved having a good time and making people laugh. I will forever cherish the times we had throughout high school and beyond as we became men. Mark will be missed, but not forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with His Mom, sister, and extended family at this time. May his memory live on forever.

It's with a heavy heart that I say these words. We shared a bond - a bond that no one else shared. Our talks for days on end- through the good, bad, and ugly. We shared each others struggles and both had hearts of gold. It wasn't meant for this lifetime Mark, but for another in eternity.You will be missed my beloved friend and so much more. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I will always hold them up in prayer and you will always walk by their side, like the true angel are - spread those wings and fly my Love. Always and Forever- Julie
