My cousin Mark, I have many fond memories of his childhood pranks, exuberance, and big smile.
A brave man, loving and proud husband, dad, and grandpa; his family brought such joy to him. The stairway to heaven took him away. Mark, you will be missed and remembered in our hearts and prayers. My condolences to Kathy, Mark, Jamie, their families, and the Dempsey cousins
Oh Kathy, I'm so sorry to hear of Marks passing. Keeping you and the kids in my prayers. If you need anything, please don't hesitate to call.
My Poppop , I love you and will miss you so much. I’m so happy you aren’t in pain anymore. You deserve to run around up there like you haven’t been able to do here. I’m gonna miss you like crazy. I love you Poppop ❤️ Brooke
