Thank you sincerely for the kind words, fond memories, and prayers. it truly makes me happy inside to read these kind messages. I know that many of you had not seen or spoken to my Dad in a long time, but I think we all know he was the same tall guy with a big smile that we all remember.

My deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one.
Those we Love remain with us,
for Love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade,
because one loved is gone.
Those we Love can never be,
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there's a memory,
They live on in our heart......

I am sad to hear that my big brother from San Francisco passed a week ago. I wish I could attend the funeral today. Mark we had some great times together, you and Sherri were always there for me and allowed me to do everything. I know you are in a better place now my man. The Robinsons/Rainey family was my second family in CA and Ohio. I will hold on to memories shared and I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Craig Wade

To the family of Mark Rainey,
I was saddened to learn of the passing of Mark, and would like to express to you my sympathies and condolences. We were classmates at Nettie Lee Roth, class of '70. Although I had not seen Mark for many years, he was always friendly and a good person as I remember him. I hope he is now resting peacefully, and you are able to find consolation in that.
Falcons forever,
