Cant get through a set of Memorial Push-Ups without staring at my bracelet and tearing up. i will never forget our friendship and all the good times we shared. The pain i felt that day hasn't diminished. I pray it never will as it is my motivation to live better...Be better. I miss ya Borther
Bobby Bonello (12.05.10, 12:59 PM): This website is awesome! Glad Mark is getting the recognition that he deserves. I know that he would never ask to be in the spotlight for anything but simply he always was. He was truthfully the best person that I have every met. Miss ya big guy!

Mama (11.30.10, 2:36 PM): Baby Boy, Yesterday made two months since your death and so much has happened. I got Max, Nick, and Brooke registered in school here in Haleyville. Your sister is working out her notice and she will be moving this weekend or one day next week. What a difference two months makes. I only wish all of this could have happened and you be here with our family. Our family is lost without you. We are filled with love and respect for you. How we miss you though. Without you here there is such a void in all our lives. I know how much you loved your family and you are still looking out for us. I love you sweet boy, forever and ever. We'll be together as a family again someday. That is Heavenly Father's plan.

Leah Tinker (11.29.10, 10:33 PM): Hey marky! Today makes 2 months that we lost you. It has been a really hard day for me. As I left Haleyville to come back to Nashville this morning, I stopped by to see you. It still doesn't seem real at times. I still don't want to believe you are gone. I miss you so much and wish I could talk to you face to face. I think about you all day. I will never forget the huge sacrifice you made for me and for so many others. I love you with all of my heart and will continue to love you forever. I will continue to share you and your story with everyone I know. People need to realize the simple life we take for granted here while brave men like you put their lives on the line every second of the day for them. Thank you for your sacrifice and for being an example to me! I love you Marky and can't wait to see you again!! XOXO

MICHELLE HENDERSON ERGLE (11.29.10, 5:42 PM): THIS WEBSITE IS AMAZING ....... I WILL SHARE WITH EVERYONE... GOD BLESS ALL THE SOLDIERS FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOM!!!!
David (11.28.10, 11:53 AM): I hope and pray that all who hear Mark's story and the stories of all who have fallen will never forget the enormity of their sacrifice and never take for granted the freedom they fight for. There will always be those ready to take that freedom away and I thank God there will always be those, like Mark, brave enough to stop them. From the UK, I say God bless Mark and God bless America.
Sandy Dobbs (11.27.10, 9:01 AM): When I think of hero, I will always think of Mark. What a beautiful tribute in his honor.

Anthony B. (11.24.10, 9:08 PM): This is a wonderful way to remember Mark. I think about Mark's sacrifice every time I see the Stars and Stripes or hear the national anthem. I am grateful for what Mark and all of his comrades-in-arms have done and continue to do for our great country.
Ray Lawless (11.24.10, 4:03 PM): A fantastic job on Marks site. I have it bookmarked so that I may share it with as many people I can so they can get a true appreciation for a true American Hero! God Bless Mark's family and friends!!
