Mark Jack loved his tribe (the people who respected and loved him). He was so funny and always wanted to make people smile. He was a crazy hard worker but also played hard. He spent time when he was very young playing football with his uncle Den and uncle Mark. He continued playing into high school. Mark started working at a young age with his Aunt Lynn Uncle Keith, and Dad. Mark spent a lot of time hanging at his grandparents house-helping them and his poppa with whatever they needed. We had a very close relationship and spent a lot of time having coffee at the beach. The beach was one of marks favorite spots. He loved the sound of the waves and watching the sunsets.
Mark and his best friends Tony (who also passed of an overdose) and Dalton had bounds like no other. The love he had for them was incredible. Mark had 2 sayings: be who you are because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind. And: to the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world. Mark was my world! I love him infinity plus 1
If readers could leave with one standing message from your story, what would you like that to be?
The happiest of people still need someone they can reach out to.
