I met Brownie 55 years ago as a Harrison Hood and we have been close friends ever since. He was always so funny, helpful and caring. I will miss him terribly!
I worked with Mark for a few years at Home Depot and enjoyed everyday I got to work with him. He was such a kind and pleasant person to be around. He always had a way of being positive when life threw curveballs. Mark was the best of the best and he will be missed.
So sorry for your loss.
He was so kind and had the best attitude. I will miss all the stories he would tell, it will not be the same without him. RIP Uncle Mark.
Mark was such a great guy. He could always make you laugh. I enjoyed working him at Home Depot. Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed.
