Hopefully we do meet again someday, but for now, rest in peace and know you'll never be forgotten!

Marcus, your smile and kindness will be missed. Praying for your family and the countless lives that you have touched. You will forever be in our hearts.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
