  2. To The Family:

    We are saddened to hear of Marcus’ passing. About 15 years ago, Marcus helped us move and never asked for anything in return. I knew then that he had a kind heart & soul. Over the years, we lost touch with one another but we often thought of him and wondered how he was doing.

    Please accept our sincere condolences and know that we will miss Marcus and that we will keep all of you in our prayers.
