The Latest

I've been sitting here for about an hour debating on the appropriateness of this particular post. I know that some of you are my dad's close friends and want an update, but the truth is the update isn't good. We found out today that he can no longer live without life support. His organs are failing and his body is septic which means poison has taken over. As far as I know he will remain in an induced coma until the end. I'm not sure how long they plan on keeping him on life support, but I do know that many of us (myself included) are trying to get there to say good bye. I will not have my computer with me and won't be able to post for a couple of days. I suspect the next post will be after the fact. Although this is saddening news I feel so thankful that he is no longer in pain. The past month or two has been terrible and I know he is going to a much better place. He will be able to leave this world in a peaceful manner and join his parents in heaven. We will all have a new angel watching over us. Thanks again for your continued prayer because I know my family will need it.


  1. To all! We are continuing our prayers. I am so sorry that all of you are having to face this but we do know that we are going to be gaining another Angel! He will be greeted by so many that love him. In these last few months Mark has touched so many lives with his strength and testimony. Our love is with all of you!

  2. i only had the pleasure of meeting mark once but have been following his blog since the beginning. i just wanted to say that your entire family is in my prayers. i pray for God to give ya'll peace and comfort during the days ahead.

  3. Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, to all the souls you can, in every place you can, at all the times you can, with all the enthusiasm you can, as long as you can. John Wesley

    Thank you for writing such a difficult post. This quote reminds me of Mark, why he has touched so many lives. I pray for the strength and courage of all as we face this difficult time. Most of all for Mark and your family.
