    My Uncle Mark was one of the best and he and I shared something special, as I know he did with many others. It’s sad this had to happen to a beautiful person like him, but I’m glad to know he’s well and happy with Grandpa now. I will miss him. Now who’s “Peanut” am I going to be?? 🙁 I’m so sorry you all had to endure this too soon. Aunt Denise- thank you for being an angel. Love and miss you all.
